Social security contributions represent a considerable cost for most companies, as they are collected by bodies that have great enforcement powers over companies.
In France in particular, social security law has grown and become more complex these past two decades. A great number of tools have been created to enable companies to improve in particular the refund of their employees’ health expenses and retirement benefits.
