Posting of workers in Germany: obligation to declare your employees on the MiLoG portal (MindestLohn-Gesetz)

Foreign companies carrying out transport operations in Germany must pay their posted drivers on the basis of the German minimum wage: currently at € 8.84/hour.

Furthermore, since the 1st of January 2017, it is necessary to create an account and to declare your posted employees in Germany via the website MiLoG (MindestLohn-Gesetz), made available by the German Customs.

At the request of German Customs, you must be able to provide:

  • Certificate of posting
  • Your employee’s work contract
  • Working time records
  • Payslips
  • Proofs of payment of the wages
  • A1 Form (linked to the payment of social contributions)
  • Identity documents

If you are independent or the director of the company, the certificate of posting is useless. You must have a copy of your company’s company print out or register of commerce indicating your status.

Documents must be translated in to German.

Eurovat can provide you with helpful documentation on request. Do not hesitate to contact us!
