While Argentina may no longer be one of the wealthiest countries in the world, as it was during the early 1900s, the country remains a top spot for international talent. The largest Spanish-speaking country on Earth, Argentina boasts one of the top economies in South America. Visitors enjoy a community with a passion for great food, but don’t skip the afternoon merienda meal, or you will be hungry before dinner is served after 9 p.m.

Grow your team in Argentina with Remote

Looking to employ workers in Argentina? Companies hiring in Argentina must either own a legal entity in the country or work with a global employment solutions provider, usually one that provides employer of record services.

Remote can employ your team in Argentina on your behalf through our local legal entity in the country and handle payroll, benefits, taxes, and compliance for your Argentina team. You can also pay contractors now in Argentina with Remote.

Risks of misclassification

Argentina, like many other countries, treats self-employed individuals or contractors and full-time employees differently. Misclassification of contractors in Argentina may lead to fines and penalties for the offending company.

Employing in Argentina

Argentina’s Constitution, several international treaties, employment contract laws, various federal statutes, and collective bargaining agreements all play a role in Argentina’s employment regulations. Any company looking to employ people in the country must abide by all of Argentina’s labour-friendly laws. Because these regulations evolve over time, companies must stay vigilant to stay compliant.

To employ workers in Argentina, contact Remote to learn more about your options.

Minimum Wage

In Argentina the minimum age is ARS 234,315.12 for all workers who complete full legal working days from 1 May 2024.

Overtime Pay

Unless a collective bargaining agreement states otherwise, overtime pay is either 50% more than normal wages or 100% if working during a holiday/rest period.

13th Month Salary

Argentines enjoy an Aguinaldo (SAC - Sueldo anual complementario), otherwise known as a 13th-month salary. This is statutory, and typically paid in two instalments, one in June and one in December. Each instalment must be half of the highest monthly wage the employee received in the previous six months.

Payroll Cycle

For customers of Remote, all employee payments will be made in equal monthly instalments on or before the last working day of each calendar month, payable in arrears.

For the mandatory bonus scheme in Argentina known as the 13th month Salary, half the employee’s monthly salary is paid mid-year and the other half at the end of the year.

Onboarding Time

We can help you get a new employee started in Argentina fast. The minimum onboarding time we need is only 5 working days.

Our team ensures your employees are onboarded and paid as quickly as possible while keeping your business compliant with all local employment legislation. The minimum onboarding time begins after the employee submits all required information onto the Remote platform. The onboarding timeline is also dependent upon registration with local authorities.

For all non-nationals of the country of employment, the Right to Work assessment (if applicable) will add three extra days to the total time to onboard. There may be extra time required if we need to follow-up on the right to work assessment.

Please note, payroll cut-off dates can impact the actual first day of employment. Remote has a payroll cut-off date of the 10th of the month unless otherwise specified.
