Recording of working hours becomes mandatory
In May 2019, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) had already ruled that companies in the EU must record all hours worked by their employees :in the future. On September 13, 2022, the German Federal Labor Court (BAG) supported this decision in a separate ruling on the recording of working hours. Following the ruling of the BAG in Erfurt, time recording is already mandatory in Germany. We have compiled the most important questions and answers on the BAG’s ruling on the recording of working hours for you in our HR-Know-how article.
What does time recording compatible with DATEV software mean?
When using digital time recording with DATEV integration, your clients transfer wage and salary-relevant data from time management directly to the DATEV LODAS or DATEV Lohn- und Gehalt software you use. In addition to working hours, this also includes overtime and bonuses as well as absences such as vacation and illness. ZMI’s time recording solution has a tested DATEV interface with which the transaction data of all your clients’ employees can be transferred to payroll accounting. As a DATEV partner, our solutions are also listed on the DATEV marketplace. This ensures that they fit perfectly with your firm’s accounting software.
How does your tax firm benefit from DATEV time recording systems?
If you already use DATEV software solutions such as DATEV LODAS or DATEV Lohn- und Gehalt in your tax office, a time recording with DATEV interface on the part of your clients is the optimal supplement. The automatic evaluation and preparation of the gross wage data already takes place at your clients and enables a digital transfer of the data, directly into your DATEV software without the need for time-consuming manual export and processing of the data. The error-prone manual transfer of data from Excel or even timesheets is now a thing of the past and your employees can concentrate on value-adding activities in the office.
