3. How to set up global payroll in Argentina

The payroll process in Argentina cannot simply be reduced to similar processes elsewhere. That is, while the employee payroll process follows a similar pattern — from pre-hire pay negotiation to post-placement invoicing — Argentina's elusive economic realities make payroll much more complicated.

Employers in Argentina must frequently navigate a wide range of inflationary pressures, ever-changing salary adjustments and increases, and a growing shift toward employee self-help HR applications in order to manage payroll requirements.

From the perspective of an employer, particularly an international employer actively preparing payroll for talent in Argentina, the payroll process becomes a burden, if not a liability, draining the HR function.

When you factor in Argentina payroll taxes — in a country where workforce skills vary dramatically, especially between agriculture and IT service sectors — you're inundated with even more payroll complexities and variations.

You must first establish your subsidiary in Argentina before you can set up payroll in Argentina. It could take months before you're ready to hire employees, causing some potential employees to look for other jobs. You'll need some personal information from employees, such as their national ID number, deductions, and position, if you're ready to set up Argentina payroll.

You must also register all employees with the Argentina tax authority and ensure that the appropriate taxes are deducted from their salaries. This can be done at the National Tax Office. Employees must also register with the Social Security Administration prior to their start date.

4. Taxation rules for global payroll in Argentina

To remain compliant after establishing payroll in Argentina, you must adhere to a number of rules. As part of social security, employers must contribute to the pension fund system, Medicare coverage, life insurance, and labor risk insurance for all of their employees. Pension Fund rates can reach 17% and life insurance rates can reach 0.50%. Employees must contribute to each of these areas as well.

Although there is no payroll tax in Argentina, employers must pay a 35% corporate income tax. The country has a progressive tax system, which means that the income tax rate rises as an employee's salary rises. When setting up Argentina payroll, it's critical to understand where your employees fall on this scale.

5. Payroll options for companies in Argentina

Companies that wish to expand their operations globally have four different payroll options in Argentina. These payroll options are:

1. Internal Payroll. This payroll option is applicable for already established companies in Argentina. It includes devoting an entire Human Resources staff to running the company's payroll procedures.

2. Remote Payroll. Smaller firms may lack the capacity to handle their own payroll, but they may add their workers to the parent company's payroll. This action, on the other hand, requires considerable thinking. You must guarantee that you follow the rules and laws of each nation.

Working with a local outsourcing firm is one method to retain money in the local economy, but you'll still need to study all of the local rules and regulations, since you'll be held responsible.

3. Argentina payroll outsourcing: Outsourcing your payroll to an Employer of Record in Argentina, such as Rivermate, is another alternative for Andorra payroll outsourcing. We can manage all aspects of your payroll, including compliance. Send us a note and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!

6. Payroll compliance Argentina

Taxation is a source of concern for all employers. This is especially true if you're operating offshore and don't know where to start, let alone which compliance laws and rules to follow.

Worse, your native payroll system may not be compatible with payroll systems currently in use — or approved by relevant regulatory bodies — to process your payroll requirements.

Compliance becomes a double pain in Argentina, not only because of difficult-to-navigate labor laws, but also because you're an international employer looking to manage your payroll locally.

Unless you have a local legal entity, you're on your own in Argentina when it comes to salaries, wages, benefits, allowances, social security, pensions, and other perks.

To be payroll-compliant in Argentina, then, you must perform a delicate balancing act between internal HR considerations and external legal complexities. The ongoing payroll considerations necessitate a more in-depth examination of payroll laws and components in Argentina.

7. How to manage payroll in Argentina
