HR and payroll

Planning to do business in Central & Eastern Europe? Or perhaps you’re already operating a firm and seeking fast, effective, and reliable HR and payroll support for your staff? Rely on the services of our experienced team!

We provide comprehensive services involving calculation of payroll at the local and international level, with an eye to optimizing tax obligations. We assist in drafting contracts, calculating salaries, preparing tax and social insurance declarations, maintaining personnel files, and settling records of working time. We support our clients’ staff in correctly settling their annual personal income taxes.

We serve companies registered in Poland, Czechia, Hungary and Romania, as well as firms delegating staff to and from these countries, corporate clients across all industries, and temporary employment agencies. We have a wealth of experience settling tax and social insurance payments of foreign companies hiring staff in Poland without creating a branch or representative office here.

Our strong suits:

  • We don’t blindly trust the calculations generated by payroll systems—our hallmark is verification of the numbers, which is why all social insurance inspections of our clients have ended successfully.
  • Experience serving foreign companies hiring staff in Poland, Czechia, Hungary and Romania (both in situations where social insurance premiums are paid by the company and when the employee assumes the obligations of the remitter of premiums).
  • Preparation of particularly complex calculations – pay comprising multiple elements (even as many as 20 variables).
  • Analysis of the tax situation and tax settlements of foreign staff from foreign companies.
  • Creation of reports and payroll lists of all sorts for the clients’ needs (e.g. the validity of periodic occupational health and safety examinations and training, education, age, employment status, average headcount, employment costs, breakdown of payment of specific salary elements for the given period).
  • Flexible approach to HR and payroll systems – supported by our own IT system or the client’s system.
  • Rapid response to client inquiries, accurately and on-time.
  • We take on projects connected with HR, payroll and tax audits.
