efficiency advantages

The well thought-out user guidance simplifies all processes and is already supplemented during the input by maturity checks. This helps the user to avoid errors. comet PA meets the requirements of German tax and social security law. The automatic health insurance comparison and the GDPdU-compliant provision of tax-relevant data are also part of our solution. In addition, the ITSG certificate for DEÜV notifications, the encrypted transmission of ELSTER data and many other services are a matter of course.

The easy-to-install software includes numerous efficient product features for every user:
Anyone who uses comet PA in their company can control highly complicated processes in terms of payroll technology simply and practically at the click of a mouse using many automatic functions – from monitoring the status of notifications to appointment management. In addition, there is the flexible and parameterizable wage type and booking management, which guarantees individual evaluations in compliance with legal requirements.

In addition, comet PA provides sophisticated Internet communication to all available public acceptance points, to HUP and to its own employees. This enables many convenience features such as update management, an Internet messaging service and the encrypted and signed sending of salary statements by e-mail to your employees.
