The Declaration Solutions team is in charge of submitting to organisms (For example URSSAF, France Travail in France, HRMC in the UK) documents where PayFit declares all the financial information that involves paying contributions to the state and health organizations or receiving government help and benefits for the company or employee.
To do so, the team developed a solution that empowers declaration CS teams to manage the whole lifecycle of declarations (Reviewing the generated document, checking the result of the syntax validation before the submission, submitting or tracking submission status when it is done automatically, receiving organisms feedback on these submissions and managing a backlog of tasks to do following these feedback when necessary).
