Paperles digital payroll accounting
- With DATEV’s “Unternehmen online” program, our clients can offer their employees the option of accessing their payroll documents paperlessly and digitally in a secure electronic portal with password protection. To do this, the employer first activate the employee and the employee register. As soon as a payroll is ready, the employee receives a message by email and can access their payroll within seconds by means of a TAN sent by SMS. Thus the following advantages arise:
- There are no postage costs and no time for printing and enveloping pay slips. This reduces costs for the employer.
- Employees receive their statements earlier because there is no time to send them by surface mail.
- Employees can access the statements digitally on any PC, tablet or smartphone while on the road.
- The digital pay slips are stored in the database for 10 years. There is no need to print out or search for old, lost pay slips.
