Hiring in DoDominican Republic.

When you start your work in the Dominican Republic, you’ll soon need a staff of people behind you. Human capital is the most important resource your company has, and you need to invest time in the recruiting, hiring, and onboarding processes. That said, many companies don’t have the time to devote to hiring while also setting up payroll, creating a benefits plan, and establishing a subsidiary.

Compensation & Benefits in Dominican Republic.

Employees in the Dominican Republic are just like employees everywhere — they want competitive compensation and benefits. Your company needs to meet the Dominican Republic’s compensation laws to stay compliant, but you should exceed these statutory minimums to attract employees to your positions. Unfortunately, many companies don’t have the time or knowledge to create a benefits plan.

Dominican Republic Subsidiary.

Setting up a Dominican Republic subsidiary is necessary before you take any other action. You need the subsidiary infrastructure for everything from running payroll to paying your new employees. However, it takes most companies weeks or months to establish a subsidiary, which can significantly impact their desired start time.

Dominican Republic Visas & Permits.

Is your business planning to expand operations to the Dominican Republic? If so, you’ll need to hire a team of talented employees abroad — but you’ll probably want to relocate some of your existing team members to make sure the transition is as smooth as possible. Before they can start working in the Dominican Republic, however, it’s up to you as the employer to make sure they have the visas and permits to do so legally.
