Payroll accounting for SMEs

Expertise that pays off – our payroll and HR services

When it comes to payroll, the devil’s in the detail. Your employees need to be paid on time and receive accurate salary statements. The tax authorities require legally compliant payroll documentation. That means you need someone who knows what needs to be done, conscientiously takes care of it and keeps an eye on the big picture as well as the details. Our payroll package is perfect for you.

Benefits that pay off

All in one, one for all – that’s the concept behind our payroll accounting package. Especially for you: we cover all aspects of your tasks, ensuring you keep your finger on the digital pulse, retain an overview and are always up to date.

Data updates via web or app

Your employees can enter changes of address, marital status, bank details and any other changes to their personal data directly via the internet or mobile phone. This makes sure processing isn’t interrupted unnecessarily and that no errors are introduced. 

Monthly payroll processing

We ensure correct and punctual payroll processing each month and monitor payment runs.

Social security

Our social security experts are happy to answer any questions you have about social security. It goes without saying that we can take care of your annual report to the social security authorities.

Expenses processing

You can send us your employees’ expenses from your mobile, tablet or computer. This ensures expenses are reimbursed in good time, with the salary.

Standard documents

We provide you with standardised expense regulations, staff rules and employment contracts. This way you can set up simple digital processes in your company that make payroll more efficient.

Salary statements

Drawing up salary statements is a skill that has to be learned and practised. With the payroll package, you can simply leave the work to us.

HR administration in unfortunate circumstances

If an employee is absent following an accident or due to illness, we take care of liaising with the Swiss social security authorities.

All in one, all inclusive – our prices for payroll accounting

Payroll accounting requires maximum precision for maximum satisfaction on the part of your employees. That can be particularly difficult for SMEs, as the HR people in charge of it are often also responsible for other areas as well. Leave it to us. Here are three examples of what it might cost – and why it is definitely worth it.

Initial costs – valuable fee

Before we set off together, we need to do a few things first. For example, we need to programme certain interfaces or reorganise your processes. This one-off set of tasks is not included in our monthly fee. But with your help, we can give you a detailed quote.
