Payroll management in Morocco


Is your payroll in Morocco managed by a qualified professional? Do you have a good grasp of all the items in your payroll and all the tax implications?

Payroll in Morocco – A time consuming, complex task

Although it is a time-consuming task with little added value in appearance, payroll can be a source of risk.

First of all, in Morocco the tax on salary income is a withholding tax. The employer is responsible for calculating, withholding and paying this tax. The salary income tax is calculated on an annual basis. Each month the employer must readjust the yearly accumulation of income to assess the calculation accuracy. The employer is liable for any error in the salary income tax calculation.


Moreover, the task is not easy. The Income Tax is calculated according to a progressive scale based on the gross taxable income. The accountant must be aware of the deductible allowances, the various advantages that the law provides in terms of tax reductions. He must be informed of recent changes in tax law and social security contributions. In addition, all the provisions of the labor law may affect the calculations (right to leave, severance pay, absence, abandonment of post, etc.). More and more companies prefer outsourcing payroll because of its complexity, in order to focus on HR development.

Payroll outsourcing – A Chartered Accountant is your ideal partner

Chartered accountants are independent professionals who have several assets:

  • Multidisciplinary background in accounting, tax and legal matters
  • Experience in different fields which gives him an insight into several business areas
  • Good knowledge of best practices in terms of internal control and HR organizational procedures

Unlike other professionals (such, specialized payroll service providers), who draw their strength from the standardization of processes alone,  Chartered Accountants are very keen on providing the best advice to their clients. Choosing a firm that handles both accounting and payroll, means you can be sure of receiving good advice and, above all, that the payroll department will not be interrupted due to absence, departure or illness.
