FAQ Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to set up an entity with International PEO?

While establishing an entity may be advantageous under certain circumstances, you do not need to set up an entity to compliantly establish a presence in foreign markets with International PEO. If you would like to purchase property or take advantage of local corporate tax rates, then entity setup is a more attractive option.

If I choose not to use International PEO and establish an entity instead, which entity setup and support services do you provide?

Velocity Global’s network of experts assist with each step, from initial setup to ongoing maintenance, including:

  • Navigating country-specific complexities and requirements
  • Communicating with local governments to save you time and resources
  • Maintaining compliance with local regulations
  • Preparing monthly and annual financial statements, reports, taxes, payroll, and statutory returns—ensuring each aligns with local requirements

How long does it take to set up an entity? 

The time it takes to establish an entity varies, depending on several factors. On average, you can expect the process to take 3-4 months before you can begin operating in your new market(s). This timeframe often increases exponentially due to delays in banking, filing errors, and other administrative tasks.

What ongoing work is necessary to support/maintain an entity?

To ensure you’re meeting all corporate compliance regulations, you need a team of local accountants, HR personnel, lawyers, and payroll specialists.

Why should I hire someone to help with entity setup?

Establishing an entity is an incredibly time-consuming and expensive process—no matter the market. Relying on Velocity Global frees up your essential internal resources, so you remain focused on day-to-day operations and overseeing your global expansion efforts.
