Employers

All employers are required by law (in accordance to the Sickness Insurance and Accident Insurance Ordinances) to register at SZV. You qualify as an employer, if you employ one (1) or more persons, meaning that they work for you and receive wages. There are two possibilities for employing persons:

  • You are established in Sint Maarten and your employees work for you in Sint Maarten
  • You are established in Sint Maarten and your employees work for you outside of Sint Maarten
  • You are a foreign company but have employees work for you in Sint Maarten

 

An employer can be a natural person (such as an individual, called a sole proprietor), or a legal entity (such as a corporation, an N.V. or a B.V.)
