As an employer, you have certain statutory obligations towards your employees and various authorities.
If your company employs more than one permanent employee, you must register in the Tax Administration’s employer register. Establish an employment contract with your new employees in accordance with the collective agreements in your field.
As an employer, you are obliged to pay tax withheld at source from all wages paid to employees, along with making employer’s health insurance payments (former social security contributions). You must also obtain statutory insurance policies for your employees and make various insurance payments, such as employment pension insurance.
An employer is obligated to submit certain notifications to the authorities (e.g. the Tax Administration) and pension and insurance companies. An employer is also obligated to arrange and pay for occupational healthcare for its employees, regardless of how many employees there are. In addition to this, the employer is responsible for occupational safety at the workplace.
