Employer of Record (EOR), also known as Staff Leasing, is a business practice that is recognized and regulated in Bulgaria. It involves a licensed Professional Employment Organization (PEO) that provides temporary employment services and assumes the legal responsibilities of being the official employer for the employees.

In Bulgaria, only a PEO – Professional Employment Organization that holds the necessary license can operate as an Employer of Record. This license ensures that the organization meets the requirements set by the regulatory authorities and is qualified to carry out the responsibilities associated with being an employer, together with the mandatory insuarance for Employer’s Responsibility.

In addition to being a licensed business activity, an Employer of Record in Bulgaria is also required to be officially listed in the national temporary employment providers Employment Agency register. This register is a government-maintained database that includes authorized organizations permitted to offer temporary employment services as EORs.

The inclusion of an Employer of Record in this register demonstrates that they have met the specific criteria and requirements set by the Bulgarian government to operate as a provider of temporary employment services.

staff leasingEmployer of Record is a service which does not include the recruitment of employees. The two services are with different conditions and are executed from different professionals in our team. To use the staff leasing we need to recruit the people first, which could be a difficult and time consuming process. When leaving job people need to file a notice. The usual resignation notice period in Bulgaria is 1 month, in IT and financial sector 2 months. When we have the right professionals for your team we can start the hiring procedure.


staff leasingIt is more effective to have recruitment and employer of record performed by one supplier, a licensed Professional Employment Organoization. In Bulgaria both professional services are licensed, but they required different licenses. If we recruit employees who will be hired by Horizons Bulgaria, on a later stage, as a PEO, it will be easyer to explain to the recruited professionals, the conditions under which they will be employed. The temporary employment is equal as rights to the permanent, but still needs to be communicated with the future employees on time.
