Understand the payroll requirements of Poland

Increasingly, UK based payroll teams are expected to manage payroll production for other countries, often outsourcing to local experts, but the employer remains ultimately liable for any compliance issues.

The UK team may be required to provide a sign-off to the outsourced provider. Do you know what you are signing off or how to check the basic features of a payroll service in a country where you are not familiar with the rules?
