FAQs

A Lithuania PEO and a Lithuania EOR are two types of companies which specialize in providing human resources services to businesses in Lithuania.

The main difference between a Lithuania PEO and a Lithuania EOR is in the scope of their services.

Lithuania PEOs provide a full range of HR services, including payroll, benefits administration, and employee recruiting—all under one roof as a co-employer. Engaging a Lithuania PEO is essentially outsourcing your HR duties in Lithuania.

Lithuania EORs actually take over as the legal employer of your employees based abroad. Lithuania EORs become responsible for labor compliance for your employees in Lithuania.

At Horizons, we offer both PEO and EOR services in Lithuania. Get in touch now and let us know what service you are seeking.

A PEO in Lithuania can feasibly hire both local and foreign nationals to work in Lithuania.

However, the ability of Horizons to sponsor your foreign national employee in Lithuania may be limited due to visa quotas practiced in many countries.

Contact us with your requirements and our Global Mobility team with review the case and get back to you within 2 business days.

In most cases, Horizons’ Lithuania PEO can hire & onboard your employee within 24 hours. The actual start date of the employee will depend on their notice period obligation to their previous employer as well as any relevant hiring rules in Lithuania.
