An overview of processing payroll in Luxembourg

Like many European countries, Luxembourg uses collective labour agreements as part of the employment law. Alongside these agreements there are the expected payments for maternity, adoption and parental leave as well as annual leave, public holidays plus detailed working time agreements and regulations governing overtime payments.

Having attended this online course delegates will have confidence that they understand the fundamentals of payroll processing in Luxembourg, are clear about employer obligations including those for Luxembourg 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 employer's responsibility to ensure all obligations are met and that income tax and social security are correctly processed.
