Like many European countries Austria has wide ranging employment law but also operates collective bargaining agreements and it’s important that employers understand the differences and the interactions between the two. This includes working time and overtime payments.

Starters, leavers and other employment events have to be reported to the social security authorities and there are requirements for other online filing using ELDA.

Having attended this course delegates will have confidence that they understand the fundamentals of payroll processing in Austria, are clear about employer obligations including those for Austrian residents and non-residents, know what they need to do on a periodic and annual basis, can answer employee queries and check payslips.

Even if payrolls are outsourced it is still the employers responsibility to ensure all obligations are met and that income tax and social security are correctly processed.
