About us – introducing Paychex

With over 40 years of combined experience in professional payroll accounting, more than 6,000 customers throughout Germany already put their trust in Paychex and the Lohndata brand.

Paychex Deutschland GmbH is thus one of the leading providers in Germany.

Back in 2003, with the support of its parent company, Paychex Deutschland GmbH initially started in Hamburg with the aim of establishing a state-of-the-art service center for payroll accounting.

From its inception, Paychex assembled experienced payroll professionals and industry experts. Payroll accounting statements have been prepared in Germany ever since.

Steady growth since 2003

Since its foundation, Paychex Deutschland GmbH has grown steadily and successfully. We now serve over 6,000 customers throughout Germany. Paychex Deutschland offers payroll accounting in all sectors (normal wages, construction wages, standard wages) and works closely with tax consultancies and accounting offices.

We maintain a worldwide network of international payroll partners and offer outstanding service for the payroll of employees of international companies working in Germany.

The head office is in Hamburg, with branches in Berlin and Dresden. Currently, about 200 employees work for the company and the number is growing.
Paychex includes Lohndata GmbH in Berlin, the Danish Lessor Group, the leading provider of software solutions for payroll and human capital management and, since January 21, Emply, a fast-growing SaaS provider with HR management, recruiting, onboarding, and training management solutions.
Through innovation, specialization and ongoing process optimization, our company gains an advantage that we pass on to our customers in the form of better services.
