The CSO section must be completed for each employee if you would like the software to compile CSO statistics for the EHECS (Earnings, hours & employment costs survey).
The Earnings, Hours and Employment Costs Survey enables the Central Statistics Office to compile regular and timely labour cost indices for the purpose of monitoring change in labour costs in Ireland and across the European Union.
If selected to complete these surveys, you are obliged by law to fully complete and return these forms to the Central Statistics Office. These forms can be uploaded online to the Central Statistics Office from the payroll software. Further information about EHECS can be found at www.cso.ie
To enter the required CSO information for each employee, go to Process ICON no. 1:
