Staffing

The staffing of your Iranian operation -e.g. of a new production line- with a large and qualified workforce within a tight schedule is very challenging for your organization in place: magnitude of recruitments, administrative handling of the new employees, operational induction of employees, etc.

IranianOffice sets-up a detailed recruitment & induction plan with you, commits to meet your imperative targets, dedicates a qualified HR task force to the rolling out of the plan, and monitors the whole process in order to secure the respect of your quality, costs and schedule constraints and objectives.

Operating Support

IranianOffice Corporate Services enable companies operating in Iran to streamline their Iranian operations: Shared Service Centers, Employee Outsourcing and Organization Assessement & Change Management

Shared Service Centers

Our Shared Service Centers enable you to focus on your front office activities, supported by a highly professional, scalable and cost-effective back-office.

The expansion plans of our clients require flexibility and focus, therefore the implementation of permanent back-office structures in Iran, at least for the first rounds of development, is rarely justified.

Some companies do not have or simply do not want to carry internally the specific skills and professionals for an Accounting, Controlling, Tax, Legal, HR or IT department.

Scalable and cost-effective, our Shared Services Centers are customized to your specific needs. We select and supervise specialized professionals with the best level of expertise. The SSC can be dedicated for 3 months or 2 years, can be in-office or hosted. We work out with you the most adapted SSC model for a perfect match to your specific short term need or your long term strategy.

Employee Outsourcing

Employee outsourcing is dedicated to international companies willing to operate in Iran without having a permanent statutory structure, or making the choice of having no permanent employees in their Iranian structure.

This solution is particularly adapted when you need local sales person(s), or your (future) manager in Iran, or some engineers in the framework of a specific project.

IranianOffice hires and carries your employee(s) on its dedicated structure in Iran and deals with all HR, legal, financial, social & tax aspects. In the case of expatriates, we also take care of work permit and visa, as well as housing.

This service is invoiced either from Iran or from Europe, to our clients’ best convenience.

Organization Assessment & Change Management

Your expansion and development plans in Iran lead to organizational changes and process adaptations both internally and with third parties and partners.Organizational issues, both Human and Process related, become particularly critical after the conclusion of an acquisition or a JV, as it is key to its success.

We provide the local or international management of our clients with: - a clear view of their present operations, partner or sales network. - and a gap analysis of their targeted organization.

We share the best practices and our knowledge of markets and people to ensure the manageability and improved performance of your Iranian operations.

About Iran

The progressive end of sanctions ushers into a new era for Iran, back in the international economy since 2016. Iran is not just another « emerging market », it is a large, educated and developed country that is already becoming a strategic place to be for international companies of any size.

A huge and developed market

Iran has a large population of 80 million, well-educated and predominantly middle-class. It enjoys modern and westernized lifestyle standards (60% internet penetrations, 1.2 mobile phone per inhabitant).

With a fast growing GDP, Iran, which was before the lift of the sanctions the 28th largest economy worldwide, will quickly catch-up, and is expected to grow by 7% in 2016 according to World Bank. It will soon come back to its leader position in middle-east and top 15 worldwide.

Iran is an “energy superpower”, with the 4th world’s proven oil reserves and the 2nd world gas reserve, guaranteeing the investments and injected funds.

Solid business perspectives

After years of sanctions, Iran needs to renovate its infrastructures (transport, telecom, water, etc.), and its population is eager to access to a more western lifestyle, hence more consumer products.


An increasingly friendly business environment

Iranian tax system is competitive - corporate tax is at 25%, with numerous exemptions such as export activities, free tax zones (FTZ) and special economic zones (SEZ) and double taxation agreements have already been concluded with several countries such as Germany, Switzerland, France, Austria & Poland.

However, the legal, tax and business environment is complex, and there is no simple “user manual” on how to start business with or in Iran. International banks as well as big audit firms are not yet able to support their clients in Iran.
