what does payrolling mean?

Payrolling means that you as an employer are in charge of selecting your own personnel, recruit and guide them, but the risks and legal obligations that come with it are outsourced. In other words, your employees are under contract with a payrolling company and this party arranges all administrative, financial and legal matters regarding your personnel.

Together with Randstad, it is easy to set up a payroll structure. Meaning we make sure everything is taken care of for you and your employees! We will take over the legal employership. This will prevent risks and worries about:

  • continued payment in the event of an employee's illness;
  • providing paychecks;
  • processing reports of illness and recovery;
  • pay payroll taxes.

So, you no longer have to worry about the employment contract, the payroll administration, or guidance in case of absenteeism due to illness. You can fully focus on your own work. Thats what we call being smart while hiring employees!

    A payroll agreement is a 'contract' between two companies in which agreements are set about the legal employment status of employees. This concerns employees who have been selected by the client, but are Randstad's responsibility for legal employment status and associated risks. The agreement also discusses which selected product forms are best suited for your company and which arrangements are involved.

  • what are the costs of payrolling?

    Since the 'balanced labor market act' was introduced in 2020, payroll companies are obligated to follow the client's collective labor agreement. This gives payroll employees the same rights and rewards as permanent employees. In addition, this means the costs of payrolling are dependent on the employment conditions. When working with Randstad for payrolling, depending on the selected product, the conversion factor can start at 1.77. We are happy to get in touch with you to give more information on the costs for your specific situation. 

    Example calculation 'regular payroll employees':

    • employee's gross hourly wage: €11,-
    • conversion factor: 1.7437
    • costs paid for employee: €11,- x 1.7437 = €19,18 per hour worked, ex. VAT

    Example calculation 'AOW workers':

    • AOW pension = a basic state pension provided by the Dutch government to people who have reached the pension age
    • employee's gross hourly wage: €11,-
    • conversion factor: 1.3019
    • costs paid for employee: €11,- x 1.3019 = €14,32 per hour worked, ex. VAT

  • do I need to have an entity in The Netherlands to payroll?

    No! If you, as an employer, have recruited employees who you want to deploy from The Netherlands, we can help you! Randstad takes over the legal employership of these employees. That's why it's not necessary to have an entity in The Netherlands.

  • what is the difference between payrolling and candidates on assignment?

    When working with candidates on assignment, you work with temporary employees and we recruit those employees for you. When working with payrolling, you are in charge of your employees, but we take care of the administrative tasks and payroll administration for you. 

    Want to know more about the difference? Get in touch with our advisors!

  • what is the difference between secondment and payrolling?

    The difference between secondment and payrolling is in the agreement. In both cases, there is a legal employer, Randstad, and a client. When you work with secondment, a client calls on Randstad to find suitable employees for an assignment with a fixed term. When this assignment has been completed, the employee will return to Randstad.

    With payrolling, exclusivity applies to the client that recruited the employee. Randstad follows the term as discussed by the client and employee and when this contract expires, the employee's contract with Randstad will expire as well.
