Horizons will simplify and expedite your payroll management in Montenegro

Establishing and maintaining a Montenegro payroll

One important element of this kind of foreign expansion is hiring locally, and this means setting up a Montenegro payroll. Establishing a payroll in Montenegro involves following a complex set of unique and frequently changing employment laws, which can be a lengthy and difficult process. 

At Horizons, we help organizations from all sectors to build and scale their operations in Montenegro with our payroll outsourcing services. We will handle your organization’s payroll setup and management, giving you full flexibility to focus on your Montenegrin expansion, even if you don’t yet have an established entity in the country.

Why choose the Horizons payroll solution?

If you have an entity

For businesses that have already registered an official entity in Montenegro, we offer a comprehensive and tailored payroll outsourcing service. Our expert team will set up and manage your payroll, also handling all of your associated administration, HR, and compliance with local laws. 

This level of outsourcing is ideally suited to larger organizations and those expanding into Montenegro in the long-term.

If you don’t have an entity 

For organizations that have not established an entity in Montenegro, we provide full support to help set up, manage payroll, and hire your local workforce.

How to establish a Montenegro payroll

If you want to hire and set up payroll in Montenegro, we recommend establishing a Montenegrin entity first. However, tackling this independently can be complicated, possibly leading to delays and impacting your profits. 

Alternatively, you can outsource everything to Horizons. Our Montenegro experts can take care of the entire payroll process for you, from setup to management, HR, and hiring, whether or not your business has an entity in Montenegro.
