In France, for each salary payment, a pay slip must be provided to the employee.
This means that if an employee has several contracts within the same month he must receive as many pay slips as he has contracts. This is extremely important in activities such as catering or retail.
The pay slip used to be provided on paper format. Given by hand or sent by post. Since 2017 the pay slip can be provided by an electronic format. However, there are provisos:
The employee must be informed that he can refuse the electronic pay slip and receive a hard copy.
The storage of the electronic pay slip must allow free access to the pay slip for 50 years (or until the employee reaches 75 years old).
Whatever the delivery method, the employer must provide pay slips regularly. He must also keep the pay slips for a period of 5 years.
Our company uses
SECURIBOX system. This system allows for both format (electronic or hard copies) to be delivered to the employee. It is also compliant with the storage and access requirement.

Do you provide company cars to your employees?
If you do, and if the employees use their company car for personal purposes, this is a benefit in kind. On #frenchpayroll benefits in kind are subject to social contributions. They must appear on the pay slips.
When the car is leased, the value of the benefit can be calculated in 2 ways:
If the personal gasoline expenses are paid by the employee, the monthly value of the benefit in kind is 30% of the monthly cost of the lease including the lease, the maintenance and the insurance.
If the personal gasoline expenses are paid by the company, the monthly value of the benefit in kind is 40% of the monthly cost of the lease including the lease, the maintenance, the insurance and the gasoline expenses.
The annual value of the benefit in kind is calculated with this formula:
[Global cost (lease + maintenance + insurance) * kilometer driven for personal purposes/total kilometers driven over the year] + personal gasoline expenses paid by the employer.
The company chooses the way by which the benefit in kind is calculated. This choice is a permanent one.
The withholding of income tax on the French payroll starts in 2019. However, it only impacts the French fiscal resident.
Direction Generale des Finances Public web site here (in English) to find out more about the French residency for tax purposes.
In January 2019 withholding of the income tax will become a reality of the French payroll.
The employer will deduce the income tax from the employee’s gross salary and pay the tax to the fiscal authorities.
The SIEE (French fiscal authority for foreign company) will only accept direct debit payment.
To allow for this direct debit, every company needs a B2B international SEPA mandate with the SIEE.
We recommend you watch this tutorial on how to create an account
Be aware that the delay between creating an account and activating it can go from 1 week to 30 days.
Make sure you act quickly to be ready for January 2019.

The withholding of income tax (Prélèvement à la source or PAS in French) on the French payroll will be a reality in January 2019.
For foreign company without a fix establishment in France, payroll providers can manage most of the process.
However, payment must be made by the company to the fiscal authorities.
For those of you who don’t know the
DGFIP (fiscal authorities), it is not a very forgiving administration unlike the URSSAF (social security) or HUMANIS (retirement).
Don’t forget that you everything must be ready for January’s payroll. And it is not unheard of to have a lot of the administration staff take their Christmas vacation.
French Payroll Expert strongly recommend that you contact the SIEE (DGFIP services for foreign company) as soon as possible to confirm that your account with them is set up with the proper B2B SEPA mandate.
