Portugal EOR Services

Easily hire employees in Portugal with Native Teams. We handle local laws, taxes, and international payroll management so you can focus on your business.

Why use an employer of record services in Portugal?

Typically, when you want to hire a new employee from Portugal, you have to set up a legal entity in the country first. This involves registering an office address, opening a local bank account, and navigating local payroll and tax regulations. All of this can take months.

Using an employer of record (EOR) provider like Native Teams allows your business to operate in Portugal without establishing a legal entity, which can save you time and resources while ensuring that you comply with all employment laws.

How do EOR services in Portugal work?

When you hire a new employee through our Employer of Record (EOR) service in Portugal, you will retain full management over their work and day-to-day activities.

Meanwhile, we at Native Teams will take on the responsibility of being their legal employer, handling everything from payroll and taxes to benefits and administrative fees. Your only obligation will be to issue payment to the leasing company, covering these costs, while we handle the rest.
