Bosnia and Herzegovina Payroll Services

Horizons will simplify and expedite your payroll management in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Setting up and managing payroll in Bosnia and Herzegovina

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

One way to bypass the process of setting up a payroll in Bosnia and Herzegovina is to outsource the complex administrative work and ongoing management. At Horizons, we will establish and run your Bosnia and Herzegovina payroll, ensuring full compliance with local legislation. Our outsourcing services are perfect for organizations with or without a Bosnia and Herzegovina-based entity.

Why choose the Horizons payroll solution?

If you have an entity

If your organization already has an entity registered in Bosnia and Herzegovina, then we can help you by setting up and managing your in-country payroll. We’ll ensure everything is in full compliance with Bosnia and Herzegovina 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

If your company does not have an established entity in Bosnia and Herzegovina, we can recruit your new workforce through our Bosnia and Herzegovina subsidiary. This service enables your organization to bypass the long and complex process of establishing an entity. Additionally, we can provide our standard payroll and setup service to help you focus solely on a successful expansion into Bosnia and Herzegovina.
