Best available knowledge in the field

Payroll administration is demanding. Interpreting different salary types, regulations and both collective and local agreements requires special expertise. Outsourcing the payrolls relieves your company’s administrative routines and makes the calculation of wages more effective.

The payroll service is produced by our Payroll Accounting Specialists, who master the current labour legislations and different collective agreements. Our specialists have access to the best and most modern digitised systems and we continuously monitor and develop the quality of our service. Our service measures up to the most strict quality standards.

Our contact person knows your company

In the early stages of our cooperation, we will map the current state of your payroll administration, its processes and needs, and after that define the optimal practices and systems to suit your requirements. We will designate your company an expert with the knowledge of the specific challenges in your business field. Your designated contact person will always have a named deputy. We want to ensure that the service always remains continuous.
