New minimum wage law in Austria

On 1 January 2017 new regulations have come into force in Austria to combat wage and social dumping. These affect goods as well as passenger transport – and specifically cabotage and bilateral traffic. Transit traffic is excluded.

Please note that any deployment of an employee in Austria must be electronically reported in advance using form ZKO3:

Furthermore, the following documents have to be ready to hand throughout the deployment period:

  • Copy of the deployment notification (in exceptional cases, transaction number/reference number is sufficient)
  • Social security document A1
  • Wage documents
  • If the employee is a national of a third country: Work permit

Intense talks and deliberations are currently underway to simplify the reporting regulations. We will of course notify you as soon as there are any news.

For more details, please visit the official deployment platform of the Austrian ministry for social affairs:

If you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
