The Personnel Accounting section (FAP-ACC-PA) is responsible for calculating, recording, controlling and reporting of accounting transactions concerning CERN's personnel expenditure.
The section is split into two distinct services: the Salary Office service and the Claims office service. The Salary Office is in charge of the payroll for Staff, Fellows and Associates, the calculation and deduction of related social contributions (CHIS, pension, etc), advances and the provision of remuneration certificates. They also provide the administrative support regarding voluntary life insurance and voluntary loss of earnings insurance which a member of person can opt to have deducted from their salary. The Claims office controls, records and authorizes for payment all types of claims made by members of personnel.
FAP-ACC-PA is responsible for the accounting provisions relating to employee benefits needed for the IPSAS financial statements, certain accounting controls and operations relating to personnel expenditures, and prepares regular and ad hoc reports on personnel expenditure.
