This means that we receive special user name and password for accounting needs so that we could upload the payment orders in the online banking and the customers just to approve them.
Insurance ( for the people involved in the company )
There is no limit according to the Bulgarian legislation about the number of the employees that a company must have. For example you could work only by yourself as manager of the company or you could either have 10 or more employees – it depends on you. As for the insurances rate – in Bulgaria each job position that you want to assign staff to, have a minimum wage. This amount is individual for each job position and it is linked to the activity of your company and your vision for the amount of the employees’ salaries. On the amount of the employees’ salaries you owe insurances. Their rate is 17.8 % on the behalf of the employer. The minimum wage in Bulgaria for 2016 is 420 BGN. The insurances are paid the same way as taxes.
