In many aspects, Costa Rica is a strong developing country with a steady economic growth over the past 25 years. Costa Rica also has one of the lowest poverty rates in Latin America and the Caribbean. All these are due to the country’s openness to foreign investment and gradual trade liberalisation, as well as political stability. However, like many other countries, Costa Rica cannot escape the economic paralysis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Nonetheless, it is hopeful that Costa Rica can recover from the plummeting economy with the government’s active effort to implement a fiscal consolidation plan and improvements in the labour market.

How to build a team in Costa Rica

Employers need to follow the strict employment guidelines set forth by the local authorities before they could employ in Costa Rica. This process can be time-consuming as the company first needs a legal entity in the country and it needs to manage payroll, tax, benefits and compliance.

Global payroll solutions make it easy to find and hire top talent in Costa Rica. With one seamless integration and local legal entity, we take care of the compliance matters so that you can start your globelizing plan immediately.

Compliance risk

Risk of misclassification

Costa Rica’s worker classification labour and tax laws distinguish between contractors and full timers. If the individual meets the legal definition of an employee but is classified as a contractor, your company will face penalties.
