Our Story

Our founder Richard started Certino in 2017 having notched up 25 years of experience managing mobility and employment tax programmes.

His first hand experience had put a spotlight on complexity of international employment tax management; the significant cost and compliance risks for multinational companies, the considerable strain on the in-house teams and the need for a simpler, technology-led solution to solve it.

He had a clear vision for Certino's products - to make expatriate payroll simple.
