Overview of Payroll in France Overview of Payroll in France

Currently there is no deduction of income tax through the payroll but there are still many other compliance issues for employers. Collective bargaining agreements are very important in France and these will specify many of the rates of pay to be used. Employers are also liable for a range of payroll taxes and levies, making employer costs very high compared to other countries.

Having attended this course delegates will have confidence that they understand the fundamentals of payroll processing in France, are clear about employer obligations, know what they need to do on both 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 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.
