Professional Employer Organization (PEO) in Bosnia and Herzegovina

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) partners with your business and provides payroll services, compliances, tax filings, recruitment, and more. In comparison, EOR is a system in which a company offers all types of payroll solutions, tax filings, and compliances by becoming a total legal employer of the payroll employee. 

As EOR is a legal employer, they hold the liabilities and responsibilities of the workers. The core difference between a PEO and an EOR can be understood through an example of insurance. In PEO, your company carries on insurance and has to opt to pay coverage under their plan, while under EOR services, your employees are covered by the EOR insurance and compliances. 

Organizations planning to expand into new territories are better suited with an EOR which becomes the legal employer on behalf of the organization. Instead of associating with a PEO in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a co-employment partner, organizations have more to gain by utilizing the services of an EOR solution. 

The EOR solution safeguards organizations from unexpected policy changes, loss of control, and potential risks as the EOR bear every organization’s legal liabilities.
