How Payroll Outsourcing Works?

Our capable team will take care of all your payroll related treatments. Starting from calculating the employees related payments.

The calculation includes income elements such as, basic salary, overtime, bonuses, incentives, profit share, vacations. We can use any payroll scheme you are currently using.

Next, they calculate various deductions such as, social insurance, taxes, governmental stamps and similar deductions. Finally, we provide you a report including the required total amounts.

We can use your existing payroll bank account, in the case you have a payroll bank account. In case you don’t have it, we will take care of opening bank accounts for your employees.

This will include finishing all the required formalities with the bank. We would fill all suitable forms and start the process for social insurance and tax submission as well.
