Employer of Record in Lithuania & PEO - Summary

Advantages of Professional Employer Organization Services

Ensure Legal Compliance

PEOs have local experience and knowledge to help meet even the most complex national and regional regulations. This ensures that you’re compliant with every aspect of local labor law in a simple, efficient, and cost-effective way. 

Save Money and Time

Working with a PEO allows you to outsource your HR and prevent costly fees and fines when entering a new market. The local expertise helps keep you compliant while cutting through red tape and saving you from costly errors.  

Focus on Company Growth

PEOs allow you to outsource your payroll, recruitment, headhunting, and even contractor management with a simple and elegant solution. This empowers your company to focus on expanding abroad with a local partner that understands the market. 

Expand Efficiently

When you expand abroad with a PEO, you can drastically reduce the time needed to launch in a new market. While starting a new entity abroad can take anywhere between 4 to 12 months, working with a PEO streamlines the process to under a week. 

Streamlined HR in One Platform

A PEO handles every aspect of HR and simplifies everything through a single platform. INS Global offers a streamlined, cloud-based solution that lets you control every aspect of your HR, from anywhere in the world.  

Why Choose A PEO in Lithuania Over Company Incorporation?

Incorporating a company in a foreign country is a complicated and time-consuming process that requires a legal and physical presence in that market. A PEO streamlines this process and allows you to operate in new markets without establishing a formal entity there.  

Working with a PEO

What’s The Difference Between PEO And Employer of Record Services?

When expanding into a new country, it helps to work with a PEO (Professional Employment Organization) or an EOR (Employer of Record). As the two services are often discussed together, here’s a quick guide to the differences between these two options.  

  • A PEO provides HR services to employees on behalf of your company. 
  • These services include payroll, tax deductions, legal regulation compliance, and more. 
  • An EOR is a company that acts as a PEO but also legally recruits and hires these employees on your behalf. 
  • With a PEO, the contract is made between your company and the employee.
