Argentina Payroll Outsourcing

Streamlined Argentina payroll setup and management, from New Horizons

Setting up and maintaining an Argentina payroll

Argentina’s economy is the second-largest in South America, and the country has many opportunities for foreign businesses looking to expand.

If your organization is planning an expansion into Argentina, an early part of the process is likely to be registering an official entity in the country, as well as setting up a payroll and hiring employees. However, this can regularly take longer than expected, with complex administrative procedures and unique business laws that can stall progress.

Many organizations choose to outsource this difficult phase, bypassing the administration to focus on the real work of expanding in Argentina. At New Horizons, we offer full Argentina payroll outsourcing services for organizations expanding into the country, whether you have already registered a legal entity in Argentina or not.

If you have an entity

If your organization already has an entity registered in Argentina, then we can help you by setting up and managing your in-country payroll. We’ll ensure everything is in full compliance with Argentinian legislation and ready to go as quickly as possible, so you don’t have to worry about the complex details and can focus on your expansion.

If you don’t have an entity

For organizations that have not established an entity in Argentina, we can offer a more comprehensive payroll outsourcing service using our Argentina subsidiary to act as employer of record, while also taking care of HR, contracts, legal compliance, and more.

How to set up an Argentina payroll

It is possible to establish your Argentina payroll independently. This can be a viable choice for larger organizations looking to build a long-term presence in the country, but it can also be costly and result in significant delays.

Alternatively, you can choose to outsource the setup and administration of your Argentina payroll to a global PEO. At New Horizons, we provide extensive payroll support for Argentina, helping you avoid the hassle of navigating the country’s complex legal framework.
