A comprehensive international employment tax management solution


Fast, accurate shadow payroll calculations

The process of calculating the correct shadow payroll taxes can often be a burden. Our smart tax engines do the job for you, calculating and determining your tax liabilities for more than 85 countries.

You'll get near-instant results and our automated processes ensure you always pay the right amount of tax, in the right place, at the right time.


Compliance checks and configurable risk profiles

Local payroll teams are often missing the necessary expatriate tax knowledge required for shadow payroll. Our qualified tax experts work with you to constantly review, maintain and update tax engines in-line with the latest legislation.

Configurable risk profiles help you stay on top of your compliance obligations and maximise tax reliefs at the same time.


Centralised shadow payroll data

With data spread across multiple systems, stakeholders and geographies, generating a consolidated view of your shadow payroll involves a huge manual effort.

Our API-first platform integrates with everything giving you complete transparency of your operations. Fewer manual data-processing steps avoid errors and costly reporting delays.

Intercompany recharging reports

Combine the output of your shadow payroll calculations with other data to create detailed inter-company recharging reports to facilitate the transfer of funds across different companies.

Pro-actively manage budgets and optimise cashflow with ease.


Banking grade security

Security is paramount to us. Certino is a 100% cloud-based platform and our tools are compliant with ISO9001, ISO27001 & GDPR and we maintain SOC1/2 certification.

We have regular external vulnerability scans and our applications are access-controlled using leading open-source authentication frameworks.

Enterprise customers can choose to have a fully ring-fenced environment hosted in their choice of locations (may incur extra costs)


Custom tax positions

As well as mandatory tax requirements, we enable you to choose to apply your own policies and take a company specific position for certain tax concepts; for example based on an agreement with the tax authorities.


Implementation support
