Setting up and maintaining payroll in Argentina
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 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.
Why choose the Horizons payroll solution?

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 Horizons, we provide extensive payroll support for Argentina, helping you avoid the hassle of navigating the country’s complex legal framework.
