Belgium EOR Services
Native Teams makes it easy to hire employees in Belgium without opening a separate business entity. We handle all the local laws, taxes, and international payroll management, so you can focus on growing your business.
Why use an employer of record services in Belgium?
Typically, businesses must create a legal entity to hire employees in Belgium, involving tasks like registering an address, finding an office, and opening a local bank account. Additionally, dealing with local payroll, tax, regulations, and benefits can be time-consuming and take months.
However, by using an employer of record (EOR) provider such as Native Teams, your business can operate in Belgium without a legal entity. This saves you time and resources while ensuring compliance with employment laws and regulations.
How do EOR services in Belgium work?
When you hire an employee through our employer of record (EOR) service in Belgium, we will act as the legal employer of your employee. This means that we will be responsible for all aspects of their employment, including payroll, taxes, benefits, and compliance with Belgian employment laws.
You will retain full management over the work of your team, and your only obligation will be to pay us a fee to cover the costs of our services.
