Global PEO and Payroll in Slovenia

Global Employment Journey: Key Considerations 

Businesses are no longer confined to their home countries in a globalized economy. They can operate in multiple markets around the world, providing goods and services on a global scale. This worldwide trend is connecting economies and breaking down borders. This trend has profoundly impacted how businesses operate and has created new growth opportunities. As globalization has become necessary for most companies, they are reconsidering how to utilize their talent base best. Rather than building large physical offices in every country they expand into, companies are looking to hire more foreign workers. Although globalization is often thought of as something that only affects businesses, it should be implemented in every company function to stay competitive. This includes human resources, information technology, finance, products or services delivery, legal, and compliance. This shift provides a unique opportunity for businesses to increase their competitive edge and leverage innovative third-party talent deployment models such as global EOR (Employer of Record) and global PEO (Professional Employer Organization). 

10 Steps to Help You Navigate through Global Expansion Journey

  1. Determine your global expansion strategy
  2. Build a Global Expansion Team
  3. Choose the most business-friendly and cost-effective countries
  4. Determine the most effective mode of entry, keeping the ease of exit in mind.
  5. Determine the suitable talent engagement model
  6. Develop a robust global talent acquisition strategy. Find an experienced and reliable partner.
  7. Compliantly hire local and foreign talent in multiple jurisdictions
  8. Create Global HR Compliance and Employment Risk Management Strategies
  9. Maintain reliable talent management systems. Adhere to local labor laws and HR compliance regulations.
  10. Global Talent Retention Programs.
One of the first questions you may have when considering expanding globally is about the legal framework for different types of business entities. While this can be a complicated topic, there are some essential basics to help you understand: All businesses, whether in your home state or another country, have a legal structure that dictates exactly how the business will be run and who is responsible for what. These structures will vary somewhat depending on where you’re doing business. Some structures are more complex and expensive than others, but they all have benefits and drawbacks.

What is a Global PEO?

Global PEOs are global professional employer organizations. That means they offer comprehensive HR solutions for small businesses across the country. By paying a single fee per employee, employers can outsource all their HR needs to an expert who specializes in managing this aspect of their business. Some services provided by PEOs include
  • Payroll processing 
  • Benefits administration 
  • Tax reporting
  • Workers’ compensation insurance 
  • Labor and tax compliance
Outsourcing some global employment and HR functions to a PERO means that the business owner is not bogged down with processing payroll, benefits, or securing visas ad work permits. Instead, they have more time to concentrate on other company matters, including big-picture issues.  A global PEO is an excellent way for a business to shield itself from the administrative burden of HR. The most common global PEO services include payroll, tax filing in Slovenia, benefits administration, and workers’ compensation coverage. Other crucial functions include compliance monitoring, policy development, employment contracts, onboarding, and offboarding handling. A global PEO provides its clients with invaluable flexibility and cost savings, helping make your accounts payable much more accessible while saving you valuable time!!

17 Burdens a Global PEO Can Relieve for Your In-House HR Department

  2. Global payroll administration

  7. Background checks
  8. Workforce compensation administration
  9. Compliance assistance

Why Use a Global PEO in Slovenia? 7 Benefits Acumen International Brings to the Table

  1. Streamlined payroll and tax filings: The global PEO processes payroll and does all the necessary tax filings for the company, significantly reducing administrative overhead for employers.
  2. Global PEO clients have access to more excellent resources and opportunities for growth than other businesses.
  3. Global PEO clients have been shown to have a turnover rate that is 10-14% lower per year than comparable companies.
  4. Expanding your business globally can be risky, but by partnering with a global PEO, you can stay flexible and mitigate significant global expansion risks. This allows your business to enter new markets securely and efficiently while knowing there is always an exit strategy available if needed.
  5. With a global PEO partner, you can test the waters before making a permanent commitment. Before you decide to invest in offices, equipment, and employee training at an overseas location, you’ll get valuable information about whether the location will be successful by seeing how well operations are received via a third party before committing to managing them yourself.
  6. In addition to helping with taxes and payroll, global PEOs can also help handle relocation and temporary housing and support. At the same time, you find a permanent location for your employees to live.
  7. A global PEO can advise on international and local employment laws, tax, and compliance regulations. Suppose you hire people abroad and they start working for you without guidance. In that case, there is a risk that their expectations might not match up with reality—setting yourself up for an unpleasant surprise when they realize their salary or work conditions aren’t what they had been promised.

Global Employment Services: How a Global PEO can Help You in Business Transition 

Acumen International PEO offers a unique blend of experience and service suite, providing global employment opportunities that are genuinely global-ready. If your company is working in transition, such as going through an acquisition or merger, or if you are experiencing a company liquidation, Acumen International can find a legal and compliant solution to hire your employees—anywhere in the world! Many companies struggle with handling the employees being left behind during these times of transition. It’s common for employees to feel insecure about their future employment prospects, particularly when they have been forced out of their positions. This can also be problematic for companies, who will likely have open positions that need filling but still have lingering contracts. In both cases, having a resource like Acumen International PEO can ensure that the company’s business continues without being negatively affected by the change. When you’re working with Acumen International, we take care of all the paperwork and legal obligations so that you can focus on completing your transition plans. We also handle everything from payroll, benefits, and even complete payroll tax administration for all our employees worldwide. This gives employers peace of mind that all of their global obligations are fulfilled while allowing them to focus on their transition plans.  A reduction in the workplace can be a scary time for employees. Global PEO can provide outplacement services to help reduce the risk and ensure that downsized employees have some assistance while searching for a new employer.

Global Payroll Management & Compliance Considerations

Managing employees in different countries can be a complex and challenging task. Employees may need to be registered and taxed differently in each country, and there may be other laws that need to be followed. This can make it very hard to keep track of everything and ensure everything is done correctly. When it comes to payroll, there are many different regulations that you must follow to avoid penalties or litigation. Each country has its laws and regulations, but some standards apply internationally. You must know and adhere to tax deadlines, withholding and reporting laws, and regulations requiring employee tax slip signatures. If you fail to adhere to these payroll compliance rules, you could face severe penalties that could negatively impact your business. Global payroll management is a complex process that requires careful consideration of various factors. Payroll specialists must consider local regulations and taxation requirements, which can be time-consuming and difficult to navigate. However, by addressing some key challenges and partnering with a Global PEO, organizations can ensure compliant, accurate, and timely payments.

International Global Payroll and Taxation in Slovenia

Employment Taxes in Slovenia

Personal Income Tax (PIT)

A resident must pay PIT from all income sourced in and outside Slovenia (principle of worldwide taxation). A non-resident is obligated to pay PIT from all income sourced in Slovenia. PIT is calculated considering five tax brackets. The tax brackets are determined  one year in advance.

Non-taxable Payments in Slovenia

Non-deductible costs for assignees include contributions by the employer to pension plans not approved by the Slovenian Ministry of Labor and not registered with the Slovenian tax authorities, meal allowances, reimbursement of commuting costs, business trips costs, and accommodation costs if paid out under conditions different from those that need to be met to consider these contributions as non-taxable in the Personal Income Tax Act and amounts exceeding those determined in the Government Act as non-taxable. If the above criterion is not satisfied, the aforesaid remuneration shall be considered benefits for assignees. Social Security Contribution in Slovenia In addition to PIT, individuals must pay compulsory social security contributions. Both employer and employee must contribute. The employer withholds contributions at the time of payment of income. Self-employed persons must pay income tax and social security contributions themselves. The basis is the gross amount of income.

Payroll Cycle in Slovenia

The salary is paid for payment periods, which may not be longer than one month. The salary shall be paid no later than 18 days after the period.

Non-payroll taxes in Slovenia

A standard VAT rate applies to all taxed supplies. Non-EU companies must appoint a fiscal representative. A VAT return must be submitted separately for each tax period in case of no transactions. The deadline for submitting the VAT return is the last business day of the month following the end of the tax period. In the latter case, also the Recapitulative Statement needs to be submitted. All forms are submitted electronically. The payment of the VAT liability is to be done until the last working day of the month. In case of VAT surplus, the tax authorities refund it onto the bank account of the taxable person  21 days after the date of the form submission.
