Businesses must meet regulatory and labor requirements when submitting payroll in Mexico. There are costly fines for businesses that do not comply.
There are also a few other aspects of working in Mexico that businesses must consider before hiring globally. Businesses must understand:
You may be able to rhyme off the above for your country of residence, but can you say the same for Mexico? Let’s take a look.
The currency in Mexico is the Mexican Peso, with 1 Mexican Peso equivalent to around $0.049 US dollars. Typically, payroll is bi-monthly, with employees paid on the 15th and the last day of the month.
Mexico labor laws have three sets of guidelines about working hours. In general, the maximum workweek is 48 hours capped at 8 hours per day. But it’s also broken down by shifts.
Often, employment contracts and collective bargaining agreements can infringe on these guidelines. Were you aware of them?
The first 9 hours of overtime are paid at 200% of the regular wage. Any hours past 9 are paid at 300% of regular wages. When working a shift, the first 3 hours after the end of the normal shift is paid at 200% and any further time is at 300%.
The national minimum wage is 141.70 Mexican Pesos per day. Minimum wages do differ based on location, industry, and job title.
Employers must pay severance pay if an employee is terminated without a reasonable cause. The acceptable reasons include:
Severance pay is equal to three times the regular monthly payment. If an employee has worked for the company for more than 15 years, they are entitled to an additional 20 days of pay per year worked over 15.

Employers must calculate and submit taxes for themselves and their employees, and it’s vital they get these correct. The contribution amounts are listed below.
First-year employees are entitled to 6 paid days off a year. For each additional year of employment, they get an additional 2 days of paid time off. After 4 years of service, an additional 2 days are added every five years.
Mexico celebrates 8 public holidays. Employees missing work due to work injury or illness are entitled to 100% of pay. Employees with other illnesses are entitled to 52 weeks of paid leave at 60% of regular wages.
Female employees are eligible for 12 weeks of paid maternity leave. The employee must take 6 weeks before the birth and 6 after. Employers are responsible for paying 40% of the wages during maternity leave. Female employees can also get 6 weeks of paid leave following the adoption of a child.
Fathers receive a mandatory paid leave of 5 days.
To pay employees in Mexico, a business must be registered with the National Registry of Foreign Investment. They must also register with the social security office and have a tax identification card. A certificate of registration with the National Institute of Migration must be obtained before hiring in Mexico.
Payments to employees and regulatory agencies must be made from a Mexico-based banking institution. Employers must pay into the national housing fund monthly. Payroll taxes must be paid to the proper agency by the 10th of each following month.
As you can see, there are many expectations and a lot of responsibility for a business doing business in Mexico.
