Employment Solutions and Payroll Services

Optimise your employer obligations with efficient and innovative solutions

Payroll is becoming more complex and changes in legislation are constant. Keeping up to date and meeting obligations has become a real challenge ‒ especially as tax authorities around the world step up their compliance and enforcement efforts.

Businesses need to ensure that they understand the tax and social security risks and are managing them effectively. Given new business models and an increasingly diverse workforce with a mix of employees and a range of different contractual arrangements, this task can be challenging.

Our Employment Tax and Payroll practice is there to help you meet these challenges. We lead the Swiss market, and with vast experience across the country and internationally we can share insight and deliver optimum outcomes for your organisation.

What are arguments in favour or outsourcing payroll? Our Payroll Study shows that there is significant demand and potential for payroll outsourcing in Switzerland, as well as a need for improvement and innovation in existing payroll operations and processes.
