BPC Partners EOR (Employer of Record) solution makes it easy for you to expand business in Brazil. The best part is, you can scale up your business without setting up a subsidiary unit in the nation. Our in-country experts will also manage taxation and compliances for you. With EOR, you avoid the legal services necessary to set up a company in Brazil, and the fees for an Attorney in fact and a local CEO/Administrator (legal conditions in Brazil).

Mandatory employee health benefits in Brazil include medical and dental care, lump-sum death benefits, pensions, and retirement plans, and maternity and paternity leaves. Rather than investing time in understanding the confusing and complex labor laws, compensation, and benefits mandates in Brazil, it is advisable to collaborate with a local payroll provider like BPC Partners. Our team based in Brazil is made up of Brazilians and foreigners, and all can speak English to have a smooth onboarding process and reply to all questions within 24h max.
