Payroll Accounting

When choosing the right payroll accounting service package, the number of employees is not the only crucial factor. The main criterion is how much of payroll processing you are willing to perform yourself.

All four packages can be supplemented with additional services. Of course we are happy to assist you in choosing the right package for your needs in a comprehensive advisory meeting.

Which is the right package?

Our Basic payroll package is right for you if you are looking for a low-cost basic solution. You want your employees' payroll accounting be processed on-time, correctly and in compliance with the legal regulations. You don't want to have to send the data required to tax offices and health insurance companies, but are willing to pass on the wage slips and transfer the wage payments yourself.

Our Standard payroll package is right for you if you want to outsource most of the time-consuming payroll accounting functions and expect additional services to be included. Without additional costs, we provide you with certifications and documents for social security agencies, unemployment agencies, insurance companies etc. This package includes special services like company car accounting, benefit-in-kind accounting for your staff and capital formation payment contracts, as well as our payroll hotline, which is available to answer your questions at any time.

Our Premium payroll package is right for you if you want to be liberated from all time-consuming employer responsibilities – we even transfer the wage payments for you. You also want comprehensive support in organising the personnel situation in your company. You have an active and forward-looking employment policy and need additional analyses and statistics for this.
