Published biennially, in association with the Global Payroll Management Institute (GMPI), American Payroll Association, Canadian Payroll Association and the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP), the Index ranks the top 40 countries in order of payroll complexity.
The key findings in 2019 reveal heightened anxiety around data ownership. Respondents from all countries highlighted ‘the protection of personal identifiable data in the payroll process’ as a major challenge. The GDPR has hit hard and stimulated a review of data protection legislation beyond the EU.
“The results of the Global Payroll Complexity Index confirm that in 2019, multinational organizations continue to be challenged by managing growing volumes of employee data, adhering to data privacy regulations, and staying compliant in a world of unique employment and taxation compliance regulations across the globe,” explained Mary Holland, Global Director of Strategy, Development and Training at the Global Payroll Management Institute (GPMI) and the American Payroll Association (APA).
“What has been interesting in the 2019 survey is the shift from it being the number of countries that raises complexity to the number of cities. This ‘micro legislation’ is becoming typical across the United States and Europe and is creating major headaches for payroll teams. In addition, GDPR is also going global. Its influence is making governments around the world realize that they have an obligation to protect the digital identities and rights of their citizens.” according to Anita Lettink, SVP Strategy & Alliances who led the survey at NGA HR.
Key research findings
– GDPR has prompted a global review of national and local data legislation
– One-third of governments have no schedule for tax and legislation changes
– M&As and organizational change accelerating payroll upgrade projects, with US most concerned by payroll compliance risks
– Rise in ‘micro-legislation’ – city, as well as regional and national rules
