Payroll accounting

Payroll accounting

All foreign company owners and managers know that

regular, monthly payroll accounting for employees

costs a lot of time and energy, especially for companies with 10 or more employees. It is much better to spend this time and energy on improving the core business of the company.

Payroll accounting should be thorough, legally compliant and precise. Any mistakes can have serious consequences, impact wages, salaries and contributions, and even result in fines to be paid. Even the smallest mistakes can be very costly. Inaccurate or careless payroll accounting may have a lasting negative effect on employer-employee relations.

Payroll accounting is a complex task in itself, and you also have to keep an eye on changing laws and requirements. You must stay up-to-date and be knowledgeable when it comes to new regulations, laws, guidelines and specifications.

The 5 pillars of payroll accounting in a nutshell.


The 5 pillars of payroll accounting

  1. Payroll accounting for new and leaving employees – e.g. tax / social security reports
  2. Preparing regular monthly wages and earnings statements for all employees during the entire period of their employment
  3. Submitting authenticated electronic reports to the tax authorities and social security agencies
  4. Closing the month in payroll
  5. Year-end closing – closing payroll, submitting mandatory reports to the tax authorities, social security agencies, employment agency and statistical office.
