How Can INS Global's PEO Solution Offer Advantages over Company Incorporation in El Salvador?

Company incorporation, the act of creating a new separate legal entity to perform business operations, can be a complex process, even in your own home country. Typically, this can take months of work, require large amounts of capital injection, and involve increased legal liability and responsibility.

Companies wishing to expand overseas often find these processes even harder in their target market because of language differences, currency conversion, and the unique challenges of hiring or managing workers in that country.

Fortunately, a PEO:

  • Reduces setup time by weeks or even months
  • Reduces the input required to manage processes
  • Reduces initial investment requirements
  • Reduces the likelihood of dangerous compliance mistakes

What is an EOR, and How Does it Differ From a PEO?

  • A PEO (Professional Employer Organization) is a third-party company that typically manages HR functions for the employees of other companies. In this case, an agreement contract is made directly with the client company.
  • An EOR (Employer of Record) is also a third-party company that offers employee outsourcing functions. However, an EOR legally hires the employee on behalf of the client company, thereby requiring a separate individual contract with the employee (as directed by the client).

The differences between these two options primarily depend on how you want the partnership to function.

INS Global provides both PEO and global EOR services in El Salvador, depending on your needs. By discussing your requirements with an INS Global advisor, we can determine and tailor a strategy that suits you best.
