How INS Global Handles Payroll for Employees in Brazil

Paying your employees on time and correctly and ensuring they’re paid according to every local tax and benefits regulation can be difficult when working overseas. INS Global utilizes specialist knowledge and well-developed support systems in Brazil to guarantee correct and punctual payment. 

Working with a payroll outsourcing partner allows you to avoid the complex process of managing these services yourself. These services includes: 

  • Having a legal entity to recruit and employ staff in Brazil 
  • Opening bank accounts that are able to pay local employees while also dealing with the currency of your other branches in case you need to make transfers 
  • Creating employee contracts that are entirely compliant with local regulations and establishing processes for deducting necessary payroll taxes, employee social security contributions, etc.  
  • Once this has been set up, you’ll have to constantly manage these processes and watch closely for any changes to local labor and tax laws. 


Alternatively, INS Global can organize these steps simply and efficiently through our local PEO. Our PEO in Brazil allows us to manage all your HR needs, including each step of the payroll process.
