Don't understand your payroll?

Rest assured, we'll explain it all!

The first thing to remember is that the weekly analysis is not the sum of the daily analysis.

👉 The weekly analysis takes into account the contracts of the employees attached to the location, whether they worked in that establishment or not, because that's what you're actually going to pay.
For example, if your employee has a work contract at the Rennes establishment but half the week he works in Vannes, his entire salary will be paid by the Rennes establishment.

Also, since overtime and complementary hours are recorded by the week and not by the day, the overtime due is only calculated on the weekly analysis.

👉 The daily analysis takes into account the hours and wages of people who actually worked on the team, regardless of the attached contract location.


How is your employees' gross hourly rate calculated?

  • For your part-time or 35-hour contracts ?

The hourly rate is calculated by dividing the gross monthly salary by your employee's theoretical contract. The theoretical contract is the employee's weekly contract time multiplied by 4.3333.

For example: Colette works 35 hours for a gross monthly salary of €2048.80.
Her hourly rate is 2048.80 / (35 * 4.333) = 2048.80 / 151.6655 = €13.51 per hour.

  • For your employees a contract over 35-hours per week ?

As soon as an employee has an hourly contract exceeding 35 hours, then the contracted hours after the 35th hour are increased according to your collective agreement.

For example: John works 39 hours / week for a salary of 2000€. He is attached to the Hotel, cafés and restaurants collective agreement. We will then calculate the overtime rate applied between 35 hours and 39 hours.
These 4 hours are increased by 10%, so we have 4 * 1.1 (or 110%), which is 4.4 hours.
His hourly rate is 2000 / ((35 + 4.4)) * 4.333) = 2000 / 170.7202 = 11.72 € per hour.


How is the payroll calculated?

The payroll calculation on Combo is an estimate because the employers' social contributions applied are not customized by contract type. It is an average that applies to all employees (or interns, interims, alternates and apprentices) which you can set up here 👈

How is the weekly payroll calculated ?

If your employee has any of the following absences, then the duration of the absence will be deducted from your weekly payroll : Sick leave, un.justified absence, work accident, partial unemployment, maternity.paternity.parental leave, unpaid leave, occupational illness, disciplinary layoff.

  • For contracts outside the daily package : The contracted hours are multiplied by the gross hourly rate (with employer's social contribution); then overtime (multiplied by the loaded hourly rate) is added to this result.

For example : Matthew works 37 hours that week for a weekly contract time of 35 hours. He has a gross hourly rate of 13.51 €.
The gross hourly rate with employer's social contributions is 17.563 € (13.51*1.3). He has 2 hours of overtime, which is increased by 25%, which corresponds to 2.5 hours.

His actual weekly wage bill is 624,50 €.

  • For daily contracts : The contractual weekly working time is multiplied by the gross hourly rate (with employer's charges) of each employee.

For example : Matthew has a 35-hour weekly contract for an hourly rate of 19.78€.
The gross hourly rate with employer charges is 25.714€ (19.78*1.3), and he is working 37 hours that week.
His actual weekly payroll is 990€.

Good to know : If the option "Analysis: add 10% for paid holidays to hourly rate" is enabled (in Setup > Payroll), then we multiply the total of the day by 1.1.

How is the daily payroll calculated ?

  • For hourly contracts: The daily working time of each employee is multiplied by their gross hourly rate (with employer charges).

For example : Matthew works 8 hours that day for a gross hourly rate of 13.51 €.
The gross hourly rate with employer's social contributions (which is 30%) is 17.563 €.
His actual payroll is 154,55€.

Good to know : If the option "Analysis: add 10% for paid holidays to hourly rate" is enabled (in Setup > Payroll), then we multiply the total of the day by 1.1.

  • For day packages : The monthly gross salary is divided by the number of days worked in the year.

For example : Matthew has a daily contract. He has a gross monthly salary of 3000€ and works 5 days a week in his contract.

So we'll divide 3000 by 5*4.3333 (which is the monthly rate).
His actual payroll will therefore be €138.47 per day worked, regardless of the length of the shift.

Good to know : If the option "Analysis: add 10% for paid holidays to hourly rate" is enabled (in Setup > Payroll), then we multiply the total of the day by 1.1.
