In the intricate landscape of employment regulations in Latvia, the process of registering employees – whether they are domestic or foreign – can be a labyrinthine task. At BL Gramatvedība, a prominent accounting firm based in Latvia, we understand the challenges businesses face when dealing with the State Revenue Service (SRS) and other government institutions. Let us be your guide through the intricate steps of employee registration, ensuring compliance and peace of mind.
Employee Registration with SRS:
For employers, both natural persons and legal entities, it is imperative to register themselves with the SRS within 10 days of entering into an agreement with an employee for work remuneration. This applies to all employees, regardless of their nationality. The key requirement is to submit a copy of the signed agreement with the employee during the registration process.
Domestic Employees with Foreign Employers:
The scenario becomes more complex when dealing with domestic employees who have foreign employers. If a Latvian resident is employed by a foreign taxpayer, the habitual residence of the employee must be in Latvia. Similarly, if the employer is a foreign entity, the employee’s habitual residence should be in the Swiss Confederation, another European Union Member State, or a European Economic Area Member State.
Registration of such domestic employees with foreign employers must be completed within 10 days of the agreement on work remuneration, irrespective of whether the agreement adheres to Latvian legal acts or those of another country. The submission of a copy of the work agreement is mandatory during the registration process.
