Global PEO and Payroll in Azerbaijan
Many companies seek global expansion, but they often get bogged down by the complexity of international regulations. They might not know where to begin or even how to find the right partners to help them navigate this new territory.
It’s important to remember that corporate and indirect tax, immigration, employer obligations, and laws are constantly evolving. What may have been widely accepted ten or even five years ago as a rule of thumb may no longer apply. Permanent establishment laws, for example, are changing rapidly to account for the digital economy and to stem the tide of base erosion and profit shifting.
What is a Global PEO?
A PEO, or Professional Employer Organization, is a company that specializes in handling human resources for other businesses. PEOs can provide a wide range of services, such as payroll processing, benefits administration, tax reporting, workers’ compensation insurance, unemployment insurance claims management, employee screening, legal and regulatory compliance assistance, HR consulting, immigration services, and other financial services. Businesses that partner with a PEO can outsource many of their HR needs and focus on running their core operations.
With a robust global PEO, you can make global employment decisions quickly and confidently – without getting buried in immigration or labor compliance work. You can quickly and easily employ your pre-selected world-class talent from any country. Perhaps more importantly, with our Global PEO services, we minimize your permanent establishment, employee immigration, or misclassification risk – leaving you free to focus on running your business.
With a Global PEO, you don’t need to worry about the cost of maintaining a workforce, recruitment, securing visas or work permits for foreign hires, issuing documents, managing payroll and employee benefits, collecting payroll tax, and paying personal and corporate taxes.
Entering into a partnership with a global PEO that is committed to helping provide excellent employment opportunities. This partnership will enable you to dramatically expand your services and reach any part of the world.
Outsourcing some global employment and HR functions to a PEO means that the business owner is not bogged down with processing payroll, benefits, or securing visas and work permits. Instead, they have more time to concentrate on other company matters, including big-picture issues.

International Global Payroll and Taxation in Azerbaijan
Corporate income tax (CIT)
Domestic enterprises and permanent establishments of non-residents are subject to profit tax at a flat rate. Taxable profits differ between a taxpayer’s gross income and deductible expenses. Gross income encompasses all revenues received by a taxpayer from all economic activities unless the revenues are expressly exempted under the law.
Personal Income tax (PIT)
A resident’s taxable income in Azerbaijan is worldwide income (i.e. income generated in and outside Azerbaijan). A non-resident taxable income in Azerbaijan consists only of the income generated from sources in Azerbaijan. The taxable base of residents is determined as the difference between gross income for a calendar year and expenses (or deductions). Where income from dependent employment has been taxed at source, no further income tax or deductions are calculated.
Payroll Cycle in Azerbaijan
As a rule, wages shall be divided into two parts (advance and remaining pay) and paid to employees twice a month with an interval not to exceed sixteen days. Wages for employees whose salaries are calculated over a one-year period must be paid not less than once a month. Other terms for the payment of wages may also be stipulated in collective agreements and employment contracts. If a payday falls on a holiday or weekend, payment shall be made the day prior.
13th salary in Azerbaijan
There is no requirement for the 13th salary payment in Azerbaijan.
