Payroll Process in Slovakia

There are three main phases in payroll processing in Slovakia: pre-payroll, payroll calculations, and post-payroll.

Pre-payroll phase

This phase is about setting up the organization and business profile, collecting employee information, and setting policies in place such as attendance and leave policies. You will also communicate with your employees their salaries, pay schedule, and statutory benefits.

Setting up the organization

Gather the necessary data for payroll such as employee information. This is also when you’ll communicate your work culture to your team. Let them know about policies regarding leave and attendance requirements. Make sure everyone is on board, and all employment contracts and policies are signed.

Business profile

Register your company in Slovakia. Your business should get a registered number that you’ll use to send out payslips and tax forms.

Work location

Even if you have employees across Slovakia, policies may differ depending on the region. You don’t have to have only one universal set of policies for the whole country.

Leave policy

Communicate to your employees your policies regarding leave. Your workers are entitled to some leave in Slovakia, including parental leave, sick leave, and paid holidays.

Attendance policy

Time sheets and Biometric devices record employee work hours which will have a direct influence on their payroll. Let your employees know policies regarding the recording of regular hours, shift hours, requests for time off, and having a doctor’s note for any sick days.

Statutory components

Some benefits must be given to employees by law. Make sure your company is complying with all labor legislation. Let your employees know which benefits they’ll receive, including any benefits and perks you’ll offer which are not mandated by law.

Payroll solutions by Skuad can ensure compliance with Slovakian legislation as well as your own country’s labor laws.

Salary components

For each employee, make sure you calculate the correct earnings, allowances, reimbursements, and flexible benefits plans according to your company’s salary policies.

Pay schedule

Make sure all employees know when they’ll get paid and how often. The payroll frequency in Slovakia is monthly.

Employee information

In preparation for payroll, you’ll need to ensure all employee information is recorded and correct, such as their names, departments, and home addresses.

Payroll calculation phase

Data from pre-payroll is fed into a system that calculates your employee's paychecks. The output is salary after contributions, deductions, withholding, and taxes. This is the main component of the payroll process.

Post-payroll phase

Salary payments

This is when employees receive their pay. When payroll calculations are complete, you will send advice to your bank for salary disbursement.

Payroll accounting

To maintain your company’s accounts properly, make sure all salary payments have been recorded.

Payroll reporting and compliance

Certain statutory deductions and contributions are withdrawn from employee pay and remitted to their respective government agencies. To see how your company can comply with labor laws and how your payroll can be timely and accurate, get a Skuad demo today.
