3. How to set up global payroll in Nepal

Creating an in-country subsidiary is the first step in setting up payroll. Before registering your company, you must obtain approval from the appropriate industries or departments. Agriculture, industry, and electricity are all common departments. You will also be issued a permit to conduct business in your industry.

Following the issuance of your license, you must register your company with the Office of the Company Registrar. This step entails a number of forms and several weeks of processing time. Once your company is registered, you can open a bank account and register with the Inland Revenue Department (IRD).

Opening a subsidiary can take anywhere from a few weeks to a month from start to finish. However, once the process is completed, you are responsible for keeping track of taxation and managing your expenses through your in-country bank account.

According to the law, an employer may terminate an employee for unsatisfactory performance. However, the employer should give the employee at least seven days to present an explanation.

Employers may terminate employment based on ill health if the employee has been deemed disabled by a medical practitioner. However, if the worker sustains an injury on the job and is getting treatment, the employment cannot be terminated for a period of one year. Unless verified by a medical practitioner, the employment of a worker undergoing treatment cannot be terminated until six months have passed.

An employee may freely resign by submitting a written resignation letter. Within 15 days, the employer must approve the resignation. If the employer does not accept the resignation within 15 days, it is presumed to be accepted. The resignation may be revoked by mutual consent or if the employee continues to work after the last day of employment.

Except for dismissals for misbehavior, both employers and employees are obligated to offer notice of termination or resignation. The notice period is proportional to the length of service.
