Payroll accounting

Your employees deserve their salary and you deserve legal certainty. We assist you in complying with legal obligations and you save time and prevent stress.

Answers to your questions

Almost every adult has held a pay slip in his or her hands at one time or another, and the subject of wages is after all as old as mankind itself. Some deserve more than they get, others may get more than they deserve. However, nowadays, a number of factors, such as gross salary, tax bracket, income tax, social security have an impact on the amount that is ultimately paid to the employee and have implications for the amount to be deducted by you as the employer.

We cannot tell you how much salary you should pay your employees, but we can calculate the salary for you, assist you with our payroll accounting services and advise on how to derive the most benefit from these services for you and your employees.


Of course, not every employer is the CEO of a large company. Private individuals may also employ workers such as the domestic help who comes every afternoon for three hours to keep the home tidy, look after the children or do the shopping. Or the gardener who mows the lawn twice a week. It is important to know:

  • What are the options for paying domestic help?
  • Do I have to continue paying the domestic help even if he or she is sick?
  • Should the gardener be paid a fixed salary or on an hourly basis?

Just ask our experts. Working with you, we are sure to find a solution that is satisfactory for all parties concerned.

A company is made up of its employees

But back to the companies for which the topic of payroll accounting is part of their day-to-day business. We all know: a company cannot operate without its employees. It is therefore even more important to pay them an appropriate salary and to retain them in the company by offering attractive fringe benefits. Non-cash benefits, Christmas bonuses and a company car are just a fraction of the things you can offer your employees in order to retain them in the company.

  • But how are these fringe benefits accounted for?
  • Are there certain limits and deadlines that you must observe as an entrepreneur?
  • As an employer, what reports do you have to submit to public authorities and other institutions?

Questions we are happy to answer.
