This makes Portugal's ports bustling business hubs that are incredibly attractive to growing businesses.

While perhaps not one of the first European countries that comes to mind when we think of leading economies, Portugal does in fact have one of the strongest, most resilient economies in Europe, largely due to its thriving tourism industry, strong markets and continued investment in its ports and trade routes. Meanwhile, the country is home to some of the most prestigious universities including engineering and medical schools, placing it at the heart of innovation and producing an incredibly skilled workforce.

An Employer of Record, otherwise known as a PEO, takes the liability of HR, admin and onboarding employees from your shoulders. While you are still in charge of the day-to-day management of employees on a day-to-day basis, an employer of record will:

  • Pay taxes 
  • Run payroll 
  • Organise employee benefits

By using an EOR to manage the employment of your international hires, you can compliantly expand into Portugal without a legal entity.
