HIGHLY COMPLEX AND EXTREMELY IMPORTANT:
PAYROLL ACCOUNTING

Your reliable and proactive partner
for payroll and payroll accounting in Germany

WE ARE HAPPY TO ASSIST YOU WITH YOUR PAYROLL ACCOUNTING

The importance of qualified and well-trained staff is increasingly crucial for entrepreneurs and companies. In addition to recruiting suitable personnel, proper and up-to-date payroll accounting is of crucial importance.

Due to the escalating and constantly growing regulations in Germany, setting up and maintaining a proper payroll accounting is becoming more and more complex and demanding. It therefore often is a high risk for the managing director and the entrepreneur to ensure full compliance with the German provisions. This especially applies if employers are not proficient in German, as the German system still does not offer many information and crucial documents in other languages. All too often, these result in the unwelcome consequences that can culminate in personal liability or fines due to non-compliance. Our multilingual team is happy to assist you and thereby helping you to focus on the key issues in setting up and running your operations in Germany.

Compliance with the resulting obligations and the preparation of a proper pay slip represent a challenge that should not be underestimated. The regularly occurring external wage tax audit, social security and artists' social security fund audit, professional association audit and KUG audits also pose particular hurdles for employers.
Furthermore, in addition to economic incentives for employees, modern remuneration models also offer the possibility of reducing the burden on the employer and at the same time increasing the net salary of the employee by means of remuneration components optimized for levies and taxes.

We are happy to assist you in managing your payroll thereby ensuring compliance, avoiding unnecessary risks and setting up an attractive and tax- optimized payroll helping to acquire and maintain their German work force.

We would be happy to show you directly which documents we need from you for payroll accounting and payroll accounting.

HOW OUR PAYROLL ACCOUNTING PROCESS WORKS:

  • After hiring a new employee, we need the necessary payroll data from you. We provide you with our checklists for this purpose.
  • By the 15th of the month, communicate any changes regarding your personal data for the current month. As a precaution, we allow for several working days for the preparation of the wage and salary slips for checks, queries and any necessary correction runs.
  • As a rule, you will receive the following evaluations from us around the 20th, in writing or by e-mail:
    - Pay slips for forwarding to the employees, enveloped if desired
    - Open payslips for internal filing
    - Copy of the wage tax return for internal filing
    - Copies of contribution statements for internal filing
    - Overview of forthcoming payments to the financial office and health insurance companies
  • The data records for your wages and salaries are usually sent to the computer center of your house bank via data transmission and must be approved by you at your house bank before they can be carried out, usually by forwarding the signed DTA protocol by fax.
  • If you have now given the tax office and the health insurance companies direct debit authorizations, you do not have to do anything else.
