Efficient payroll helps employees develop trust with a company.
Efficient payroll helps employees develop trust with a company and increases motivation and productivity. Payroll is a necessity in every business but is also a legal requirement. Employers in Saudi Arabia have obligations during the payroll process, such as social security contributions. The General Organization for Social Insurance (GOSI) requires employers to make contributions and the Wage Protection System (WPS) is a regulatory framework that must be adhered to by employers.
GOSI, a semi-governmental agency, is focused on social insurance. GOSI implements social insurance rules, collects employer contributions and pays benefits to the entitled persons. It offers contributors compensation due to work-related injury or illness, payment for retirement or having to leave work temporarily or permanently due to work-related physical incidents. It is applicable to all private sector employees, Saudi national and expatriates, and a group of public sector employees.
The Wage Protection System (WPS) is in place to ensure the security of private sector employees, both Saudi nationals and expats, in receiving their wages fairly. The WPS ensures that private sector employees are paid their wages in a timely manner and according to what was agreed upon in the initial contract. The wages must also correlate with what’s registered in the GOSI system.
GOSI calculations are mandatory for companies operating in the Kingdom. This requires companies to ensure that their reports are kept diligently and regularly updated and completed to the legal requirements.
