Our payroll services

You have an international business with employees in Germany? With our payroll solutions, we can help you grow and focus on your core business.

As an employer in Germany, you are required to produce monthly payroll for your employees and report various taxes, fees, and contributions. In some cases, you are responsible for making payments as well. These could include:

  • Income tax
  • Health insurance contributions
  • Pension insurance
  • Long-term care insurance
  • Unemployment insurance
  • Professional association dues

Paychex is here to help. Let us handle the challenges of payroll administration so you can focus on leading your team and growing your business. We offer:

  • Ongoing monthly payrolls for your employees
  • Itemized transaction lists for financial accounting and verification
  • Consultation and support in English and German
  • Payment lists and files for on-line banking

Details of payroll processing in Germany

Employees working in Germany must pay income tax and social security contributions, and in many industries, employers must notify the German pension fund before an employee can start working. Employers may need to understand stipulations on minimum wages in Germany as well. And special conditions may apply if you send employees to Germany only for a certain job or period. We will be able to help if these conditions require a German payroll.

Before your employee starts working, we encourage you to seek comprehensive advice on all aspects of German employment law. Once we have explained which social contributions you will have to consider for your employees, we will send you everything that you need for your monthly payroll.

Whether you’ve been doing your payroll yourself, have just set up your business, or have another provider for your current payroll accounting, you can switch to Paychex at any time. And with little effort.
