Setting up and managing payroll in Jordan
If your organization is planning a Jordan expansion, one of the first things your organization will need to do is start hiring a workforce in Jordan. This generally means you’ll have to establish a legal entity in the country, set up a payroll, and follow various administrative procedures. Collectively, these processes can take weeks, potentially delaying your expansion efforts and costing you in lost revenues.
At Horizons, we specialize in helping organizations spanning all industries expand internationally, including into Jordan. We can handle your payroll setup and management, even if you don’t have a legal entity in Jordan.

How to establish a payroll in Jordan
Setting up a payroll in Jordan is a complex process, and you will need to deal with language, cultural, and procedural differences if you want to set it up yourself. You will need to first register an entity in Jordan, then register with the appropriate tax authorities, and so on.
These initial processes can take weeks or months to finish, which could significantly stall your expansion progress.
Alternatively, you can outsource your payroll setup to Horizons and avoid the complex setup and management process. Using our Jordanian subsidiary as your employer of record, you can benefit from our solutions even if you don’t have a legal entity in Jordan.
