Staying tax compliant with Sage Payroll Solutions
In the UAE, different laws apply to different workers, including public and private sector employees, free-zone employees, and domestic workers. However, all employers have to provide employees with medical insurance and make deductions from their salaries for the General Pension and Social Security Authority (GPSSA). Sage Payroll Solutions can handle all of this for you, automatically. So, you never have to worry about compliance again.
It’s also important that you upskill your human resource management staff on the new GCC VAT laws. Value-added tax – a tax on the consumption of goods and services – was introduced in the UAE for the first time in 2018. It affects every business function, and the HR department will need to ensure that everyone is trained and upskilled on the new law. Sage solutions are already VAT compliant, but you will need to appoint an in-house or outsourced team to manage tax collection and payment on your behalf.
Payroll laws change often in the UAE, making it difficult to keep up. Sage Payroll Solutions are fully compliant with all employment laws and regulations, including the requirements of the Wages Protection System, which lets you pay employees via various methods – on time, every week or month. Your software will immediately be updated as and when new laws are enacted, and existing ones are changed.
