Pay

You pay your employee the net monthly wages.

With regard to the employee’s and employer’s social security contributions: Chèque service pays the contributions to the relevant insurance schemes according to the information available in the monthly declaration.
 

For this, Chèque service operates on a principle of provisional installments and, each quarter, bills the prepayments of social security contributions, estimated on the basis of the information contained in the registration form. Bills are payable within 30 days.

 

Only the actual amount of social security contributions is accounted for, then the balance is carried forward at the beginning of the year or reimbursed at the end of the period.

 

Chèque service does not send billing for clients with an online account. Employers must pay regularly into their account in order to cover the social security contributions of the salaries accounted for.
