0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the Contributions for payment (COPAYM) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1. SCOPE


1.1. Functional definition

A message from an enterprise to provide information that this enterprise has to declare for the payment of its social contributions to the responsible authority. This message may be used to declare contributions based on the salary amounts paid by the enterprise to its employees during a given period (the reference period of the declaration). It is also possible to declare contributions due only from the employer.


1.2. Field of application

The Contributions for payment may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.


1.3. Principles

This message allows an enterprise to declare its social contributions regarding all its employees or only a group of them. As a consequence, just one message only is sufficient to transmit the detailed declaration of several entities within an enterprise. Information declared by the enterprise may be associated with an administrative procedure identified by the document or message name. This message may be sent either directly by the enterprise or by a third party representing the enterprise.
