International Company

Quickly and compliantly establish a foreign subsidiary in major locations throughout the world

Global company incorporation
setup and support

Our comprehensive, end-to-end solutions assist you to quickly establish a legal entity overseas. By adopting a strategic approach, we enable clients to retain the same quality of legal compliance as their own in-country companies or subsidiaries.

At any stage of our clients’ expansion lifecycle, our team of in-country specialists can facilitate the compliant setup of a legal entity. Our integrated solutions help our clients to successfully navigate their company incorporation, payroll services, and tax compliance.

As a trusted company incorporation partner to our clients, Horizons enables international businesses to establish local entities quickly, reliably, and compliantly, in virtually any country. 

Helping you establish a compliant foreign entity

Horizons’ team of company incorporation specialists assist businesses to quickly and cost-effectively establish a foreign entity. Our pre-incorporation PEO solution also allows you to hire team members overseas whilst waiting for your entity to be established. 

Company Incorporation

Our team of in-country experts work alongside local governments to handle the bulk of the incorporation process. This saves you valuable time and money.

Advisory Services

Our highly-skilled advisors manage all your monthly corporate services. This includes your bookkeeping, financial planning, and accounting.

Local HR Department

Through the support of our local Human Resources department, you receive specialist HR expertise in any of the countries we serve.

Pre-Incorporation with PEO

Our temporary PEO transition service lets you begin operating in new countries immediately, while waiting for your foreign entity to be established.

Corporate Compliance

Our certified accountants prepare financial statements, manage payroll services, and observe all local regulations to deliver full legal compliance.

Benefits Management

We function as your on-site Human Resources department: managing all employee benefits, including PTO and bonuses, retirement funds, and severance packages.

Experts in company incorporation

The international marketplace presents lucrative opportunities to create and manage a local company of your own.

We work alongside you to identify a legal structure (such as a wholly-owned subsidiary, or a joint venture), that best aligns with your in-country strategy and long-term development plans. Once you have decided on the ideal legal structure, we will organize company incorporation for you in your desired country of expansion.

When you partner with Horizons, we manage both entity set up/company incorporation, as well as ongoing corporate support. This includes:

  • Handling all payroll setup and registration. Once incorporation is complete, we transition employees from their current employment status — under our PEO — into employment by your company;
  • Overseeing the same benefits your company has been providing to your foreign employees, under the ownership of your new subsidiary;
  • Gathering local employment contracts and legally mandated materials for the establishment of your new entity;
  • Strategic guidance in matters concerning contract negotiations with employees;
  • Ongoing corporate support, such as reporting and taxation obligations for the existing entity.

Tailored support

We provide strategic advice on international expansion and company incorporation, tailored to the client in question and their target country for expansion. We will be able to advise whether the company should:

Where the company employs staff, we also offer support for core HR and employer compliance issues such as whistle blowing, workplace misconduct, performance, HR investigations, and employee terminations.

Pre-incorporation with PEO​

In the months that precede a business incorporation, Horizons offers clients our renowned International PEO service.

Additionally, our in-house recruitment team sources and hires new talent and oversees the entire onboarding process.

Frequently asked questions

Yes. We can provide advice and information as to whether an international PEO or company incorporation solution is right for you. Where you do decide on company incorporation, engaging a Global PEO solution can be a useful intermediate step. 

If you decide to incorporate a company in your new location, but decide later that you want to engage a PEO, we can help. We can advise on the steps needed to wind-down the company and de-register it, while transferring any remaining business to our Global PEO. 

If you choose to hire employees through an incorporated company, you become the ‘Employer of Record’ and are legally responsible for withholding payroll taxes and administering benefits. However, with our outsourced Human Resources function, we can support you in these matters.  

If you would like us to take on legal responsibility for your employees, you may engage us as a Global PEO. 

Your precise tax liability will depend on the tax laws and regulations of each country that you expand into. However, in many cases, incorporating and carrying out business through a local legal entity means you are liable to pay corporate income tax in that country. 

Yes. We can provide ongoing services for your local entity such as human resources, payroll, and benefits administration. We can also ensure that your business complies with local tax and corporations laws. 

Yes. We provide full accounting services that ensure your company has financial statements and maintains compliance with local laws and accounting standards.
