Mrs. Elisabetta Batini

If you have decided to outsource your business payroll functions to an outsourcing service provider, Batini Colombo Saottini is the right solution, since small, medium, large, domestic and international corporations have outsourced successfully their entire payroll management despite of the number of their employees. This normally reduces the costs involved in having payroll trained employees in-house as well as the costs of systems and softwares needed to process a payroll. In many countries, business payrolls are complicated because taxes must be filed consistently and accurately to applicable regulatory agencies: Italy's legislation is one of the above mentioned, therefore in nearly impossible for an enterprise to manage payrolls in-house.  Another reason many businesses outsource is because of the ever increasing complexity of payroll legislation. Annual changes in tax codes, Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and National Insurance bands as well as statutory payments and deductions having to go through the payroll often mean there is a lot to keep abreast of in order to maintain compliance with the current legislation. All BCS professionals working in the Payroll Team are suject to compulsory training courses and seminars to accomplish every day this arduous mission.

Head of Audit


Mr. Giorgio Colombo

The risk of not being compliant with local laws and regulations could be very high for every enterprise, but it could be also more risky for a mutlinational company.

In fact a non compliance brings fines and penalties, but also relevant financial losses or damages in global reputation as a consequence of violations of laws and statutes, codes of conduct or self-discipline regulation.


Being not compliant could be a real disaster for any organization around the world: our teams work together to ensure that all mandatory fulfilments are duly observed from the very first step in a country, from set up of a legal entity, to all registrations at relevant authorities and communications in case something changes in the organization.
