What is ELM?

ELM is the standardized salary reporting procedure of swissdec. It includes the annual reports to insurances, authorities and compensation funds as well as the monthly withholding tax report. KLARA is a swissdec certified wage software. This ensures that all necessary wage types are available and that the calculations in KLARA are correct.

Can I correct and repeat wage runs in KLARA?

Yes, you can correct past wage periods at any time via retroactive accounting. KLARA calculates how months should have been calculated correctly according to the new parameters and transfers a possible correction of the payment to the next wage run. With this method you do not have to worry about whether a payment has already been triggered and money has been transferred to the employee. KLARA knows all amounts that have already been paid out and knows what should be paid to your employee with the next wage calculation.

When can I start with KLARA payroll accounting?

Basically you can start with the KLARA payroll accounting at any time. In order to be able to create an automatic wage statement for your employee at the end of the year, it is recommended to settle all data of a calendar year in one system. We recommend to open your payroll accounting in KLARA on January 1st of the respective calendar year. If you are in March, for example, you can map the two already settled months in KLARA.
