Attention to detail and reliability is extremely important for our company when it comes to payroll services, as we constantly adapt to the changing legal environment. We place great emphasis on the quality of our work and the professional competence and training of our employees. Our portfolio ranges from employers with a handful of employees working under a regular schedule to those employing hundreds under irregular schedules within the context of working time banking.
Our everyday work involves managing typical employment relationships and diverse staff compositions alike, such as contract work and atypical forms of employment. With years of professional experience and solid expertise in matters concerning taxes, labour, payroll and social security administration, our project team will assign to you a dedicated, one-stop account manager, and take care of their replacement in case of a leave of absence to streamline the work process.

Other payroll services
- Providing a SharePoint interface: our web interface used in cooperation with our clients is suitable for sending, receiving and temporarily storing sensitive payroll and personal data in an encrypted manner, taking into account GDPR and ISO requirements.
- Online payroll accounting: a suitable solution for clients whose payroll accounting data is managed electronically. In such cases, the data required for payroll accounting is provided via our own templates. Once the data is automatically received and processed and payroll accounting is verified, we will generate the required reports and upload them to our portal. This ensures that all information is available online, tailored to the client’s needs, be it payrolls (in a single document for all staff), individual reports, notifications and returns with receipts to the tax authorities, or year-end documents. Access can be restricted if not all users are provided with full upload or download rights. In addition to the above, the necessary sample documents (statements, applications) are uploaded and are always available at our portal.
