Audits in HR / Payroll

Would you like to know your risks in the area of HR / Payroll?

Are you seeking professional mentoring to prepare the right documents or to be able to answer questions competently? Or are you in need of support for an in-depth audit of the HR area in the internal audit?

I support companies, fiduciaries or auditors.

Risk analysis in HR/Payroll

Due to my in-depth studies and experience around employer risks in payroll, I cover a very broad range of topics. In payroll and HR administration, a wide variety of topics must be implemented correctly:

Labour law, contract law / employment conditions, insurances incl. social security and pension fund, taxes (salary certificates, withholding taxes), expense and various HR regulations, information and processes, data protection, industry-specific regulations, special remuneration elements such as employee participations / stock and fringe benefits, company car etc., payroll accounting system, provisions and posting, declarations, situations in an international environment, cross-border commuters, expatriates, international weekly commuters, project workers/assignments, board members, freelancers, staff lending, secondments, work and residence permits, among others.

I combine interviews with the study of documents and samples and draw up a report with an assessment of the risks according to the traffic light system as well as recommendations for action.

I also choose this procedure for due diligences in cases of company acquisitions and sales.

Audits by various authorities

Audits and controls must always be expected. The areas are manifold: AHV (old age and survivors insurance – OASI), UVG (accident insurance law)/ SUVA (Swiss accident insurance for certain industries), withholding taxes, taxes (wage statement, expense regulations), short-time work, tripartite and parity for collective employment agreements (CEA), compliance with working time regulations etc.

I will support you with data preparation, risk assessment and assist you with answering questions and conditions imposed by authorities.

In-depth audit by the external auditors

Payroll is often not within the in-depth know-how of audit experts. Especially when taking over audit mandates, an in-depth audit can be useful.

I support audit teams for requested payroll/HR audits of their clients.

Support of the internal audit

HR / Payroll is regularly in the planning cycle of internal auditors. When payroll software is replaced, for example, it should be checked whether the system correctly reflects the legal requirements.

I support the teams selectively or during planning and implementation of such audits and prepare reports according to their specifications.

Payroll Due Diligence

Do you need to determine financial risks in payroll? Depending on the data available, I support the buying or selling party in the execution of the analysis.
