Madrid, 18th October, 2017.- Understanding the payroll we receive each month is a somewhat complex task due to all the concepts that are included. Seresco, a Spanish leading payroll service company, and SD Worx, the leading international payroll provider, have analysed, in collaboration with its global payroll network, the Payroll Services Alliance (PSA), the payslip of an employee in different countries across Europe. The results have revealed key differences between countries.

Global payroll management with local knowledge and expertise
For global companies or organisations with expatriate employees, managing and processing payrolls face an extra challenge: integrating different payroll systems according to the legislation in each country. Given this fact, companies often rely on a payroll internationalisation. This allows them to save costs and, above all, work on the added value tasks for the business.
Seresco provides companies with its global network of payroll solutions, the Payroll Services Alliance. Thus, companies have a single global payroll system with broad experience in each country and can achieve greater efficiency for the business.
Seresco is a Spanish company specialising in software solutions and IT services, with more than 47 years of experience. Founded in 1969, it has service centres in Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Oviedo and Vigo) and in Portugal, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia and Bolivia.
