Based on your individual details, quitt provides you with a correct payroll accounting and an overview of employer costs in your client account for each employment.
The following mandatory social contributions are calculated on the basis of the gross salary:
- Old-age and survivors’ insurance (AHV)
- Disability insurance (IV),
- Compensation system for loss of earned income during military service, civil service, community service or maternity (EO)
- Unemployment insurance (ALV)
The AHV, IV, EO, ALV deductions are identical throughout Switzerland and are based on the Federal Social Insurance Office.
- Family equalization fund (FAK)
The FAK contribution varies from canton to canton and is based on the cantons.
- Accident insurance (UVG)
The UVG contribution is determined according to the terms of the contract.
If your employees are subject to withholding tax, the applicable rate is recorded for payroll accounting.
The withholding tax rate is determined by the Cantonal tax office and depends on the employment and living situation of the employees.
If your employees are registered with the pension fund by quitt., the corresponding contributions are also recorded in payroll accounting. The BVG contributions are determined on the basis of gross salary, age and workload and are paid in equal parts by employer and employee.
For your employees, quitt always takes out compulsory occupational accident insurance and, if your employee work more than 8 hours a week, non-occupational accident insurance. You also have the option of covering your risks as an employer individually with complementary insurance. Depending on your insurance selection, the relevant additional premiums will be reflected in your payroll accounting.
The wage statement certifies the employee’s agreed gross salary, all wage deductions, withholding taxes paid, net salary disbursed and any out-of-pocket expenses that may have been paid. This document is available to you as an employer as a download in your client area for distribution to your employees and must be attached to the employees’ annual tax return.
All deductions and contributions will always be up-to-date, since quitt. automatically adjusts all tariffs and contribution rates of all social insurances, tax offices and insurance companies in all Cantons on an annual basis.
