The Netherlands have introduced a simplification to the reimbursement of business expenses but the overall impact is often not fully understood and, whilst the management of expenses can often sit outside of payroll, the Work Costs Scheme (WKR) very clearly has to be managed through the payroll to ensure full compliance.

In addition to this there are two types of social insurance one for employed persons and one for everyone else. Plus a number of employer only insurances, which means that the on costs in the Netherlands are very high.

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. This course not only gives you the information you need to be compliant but also ensures you know exactly what information should be given to a payroll provider and the various tasks they should be completing on your behalf.
