Payroll in Austria.

Austria is a central European country with a notable history and many mountainous villages. Planning an expansion to this country will be exciting for your company, but it also comes with its share of challenges. One of those challenges is setting up your Austria payroll. You have to decide among your Austria payroll options, learn the country’s employment compliance laws, and continue to run your parent company at home.

Hiring in AtAustria.

Your employees are the most important company asset you have. Finding the right talent ensures your company will grow and experience minimal turnover. However, recruiting and hiring are more difficult in a foreign country such as Austria, where you have to learn how to hire Austrian employees, figure out the country’s employment compliance laws, and handle the other aspects of your expansion.

Compensation & Benefits in Austria.

Compensation and benefits can make a difference in what kind of employees you attract to your open positions. Providing statutory as well as additional benefits as a part of your Austria benefit management plan will attract top talent to your jobs and encourage them to stay with your company long-term. Plus, meeting or exceeding Austria’s compensation laws will keep your employees happy and your company compliant.

Austria Subsidiary.

When you’re ready to expand to Austria, you have to set up a subsidiary to legally operate in the country. Incorporating in Austria is the first step you need to take before you can handle your payroll, hire employees, and give out compensation and benefits. However, it can take weeks or months to incorporate fully, and the process can draw your attention away from your parent company.

Austria Visas & Permits.

Groups and individuals ranging from students to well-known researchers view Austria as an attractive country to live and work. However, rules related to residency and work visas can look complex and bureaucratic at first glance. If your company is planning an expansion to Austria with a team of foreign workers, you need to know how to obtain work visas in Austria for each person to stay compliant and successful.
