Belarus Payroll Services & Solutions

Outsource the setup and management of your Belarus payroll, even if you don't have a Belarusian entity

Setting up and running a Belarus payroll

Belarus is an exciting destination for foreign investment, and there are many opportunities in this Eastern European nation for any business looking to expand its operations in the region.

If your organization is interested in expanding into Belarus, then an important phase of the process will probably be establishing and maintaining a payroll to hire employees locally. This process can be quite complex, and you may experience delays of weeks or even months dealing with the administration and compliance work.

To simplify this process, you can outsource the payroll setup and management to Belarus payroll experts. Horizons offers a comprehensive payroll outsourcing service, designed to help organizations expand into Belarus seamlessly, even without a business entity registered in the country.

Why choose the Horizons payroll solution?

If you have an entity

For organizations that have already established an official entity in Belarus, we offer full payroll outsourcing. Our expert team will set up and manage your payroll, then take care of all the associated administration, HR, and compliance work.

This outsourcing service is ideally suited to large organizations and those looking at Belarus with a long-term view.

If you don’t have an entity

If your business has not registered an official entity in the country, then you have the option of hiring through our Belarusian subsidiary. We can act as employer of record in the country, set up and manage your payroll, and handle associated HR, administration, and compliance.

This solution provides a low-risk and flexible route of entry into the Belarusian marketplace so you can get all the benefits of hiring locally without the hassle, and can focus on the important work of expanding your business.

Belarus payroll guide

Taxes and withholdings in Belarus

Employers in Belarus must contribute 6% of salaries to the social security system, which covers things like sick leave and maternity pay. They must also pay between 0.3% and 0.9% for workplace accident insurance, and 28% for pensions.

The income tax rate in Belarus is generally a flat rate of 13%, although this can vary in specific circumstances.

The corporate tax rate in Belarus is 18% of profits for most companies. 

Belarus entitlements and terminations

When terminating employees in Belarus, certain conditions must be met, such as a mutual agreement between the employer and employee. If no notice period has been set in the employment contract, then the usual length is around two months.

Upon dismissal, employees are entitled to a severance payment of three months of salary.

The limit for probation periods in Belarus is three months.

How to establish a Belarus payroll

If you want to hire in Belarus and set up an in-country payroll, we recommend officially establishing a Belarus-based entity. However, this process can be lengthy and confusing, potentially leading to significant delays and negatively affecting revenues, so it’s always important to get expert advice.

You can avoid the unnecessary hassle by outsourcing to the Horizons Belarus payroll experts. Our team will handle everything for you, ensuring you are set up in days, not months. You can also choose to hire using our Belarusian subsidiary as employer of record, helping you can focus on expanding your operations whether or not you already have a registered entity in Belarus.
