Our French payroll solution

Based on its long experience and its perfect mastery of French social and legislative practices, FredPayroll offers you customized support for the management of your French staff.

Our clients are companies from various countries (USA, China, Australia, UK, Canada, Netherlands, Italy, Latvia etc.) trusting us with their payroll processing, HR documentation and legal assistance in labour law.

Our French payroll portal

As our client, you have access to our payroll portal. It is a user-friendly interface that allows you to transmit your employees’ variable information (absence, sick leave, bonuses, over time hours etc.) to your dedicated payroll manager. Think of it as your virtual RH office, where you can get access at anytime, from anywhere.

Through the payroll platform, you also get access to a secure cloud to store and download the monthly pay slips and payroll related documents (integrative accounting entries in .txt format, social insurance and tax statement report etc.) for your staff.

Before you start using it, we’ll organize a presentation to explain you each functionality and how you can best benefit from it. It’s a very intuitive tool, so you will appreciate being autonomous after only a brief training session.

If, after a certain period, you wish to change your company’s status and create a legal entity, we will be able to continue dealing with the payroll for your employees.
