Payroll Services

Payroll processing is a time consuming and fairly complex procedure. Care must be taken to ensure that fiscal/regulatory changes are implemented to avoid penalties or fines for incorrect submissions. Outsourcing payroll frees up resources which may be engaged more productively elsewhere and also ensures that payroll processing and reporting is executed accurately and on time.

ARQ’s highly trained team can assist with:

  • Payroll bureau services;
  • Recruitment of employees;
  • Drawing up employment contracts;
  • Engagement or dismissal procedures;
  • Or advising  with employee evaluations.

ARQ utilises industry leading software platforms to provide solutions for your payroll and HR needs in a professional, efficient and cost-effective manner.

Employment in Malta requires the observation of a number of regulations. ARQ’s dedicated payroll team provides a full scope of services ranging from application for a PE (Employment) number to subsequent processing and filing of both monthly and annual reporting to IRD, the employer and the employees. Leave and sick leave recording are also available and further support is provided by ARQ’s in-house HR team which can provide advice on a number of HR related issues. Assistance is also provided to employees who may require a work/residency permit as well as registration with the competent authorities including attaining unique tax and National Insurance identification codes.
