Hjärtliga gratulationer på födelsedagen!


Explanation:
This is slightly mor formal than "Grattis på födelsedagen" which is perfectly correct if it is a friend, close relative or someone of your own age.
My suggestion is more appropriate if it is a more distant person or especiaslly if he/she is your superior.
