French term or phrase: reprise rémunération
Someone who lives in France is the CEO of a French company and is therefore paid in France. He is also about to become the CEO of the group's holding company in Spain and will therefore also be paid in connection with his work in Spain. So the letter I'm translating contains advice to the employee on the legislation that will apply to his French and Spanish remuneration (with reference to Regulation (EC) No 883/2004). He is being advised that his French payslip should reflect the fact that he will be paid in connection with his work in both France and Spain and include the following items: 'Rémunération [CEO] XXX FR', 'Rémunération [CEO] holding ESP', various social security contributions and '***Reprise*** rémunération [CEO] ESP'. I have done a search for 'reprise' on proz but could not find anything that seems to fit this specific context. I have come across the terms 'write-back', 'recovery' and 'adjustment' in the field of accounting but am afraid that I have no idea of whether any of these terms are appropriate or whether a different term should be used, so any advice will be gratefully received. Thanks in advance for your time!

resumption of pay/salary

reprise = resumption

remuneration = pay/salary

The expression means that the person in question is to see his previous salary-based on tasks in France only- terminated and his pay/salary will resume based on tasks in both France and Spain.

neutral  ph-b: Doubt it... reprise in this context is usually some kind of 'cancellation' (write-back?) of a previous transaction./So he'd be paid both as '[CEO] holding ESP' and as '[CEO] ESP'?
1 hr
  -> NO! It's what comes after a cancellation,

disagree  philgoddard: It's not resuming, it's starting.// "He is also about to become the CEO of the group's holding company in Spain".
2 hrs
  -> Please explain to me how 'reprise' = starting in French!

disagree  AllegroTrans: It sounds strongly like a deduction or requirement to pay back/refund; see Asker's explanation which clearly supports this; your suggestion makes no sense
11 hrs

disagree  Daryo: that meaning of "reprise" makes no sense whatsoever in this ST

neutral  ph-b: I'm not sure where you get 'overpayment' from in the source text... and anyway, remboursement, not reprise, would be used for trop-perçu de salaire, unless of course you can show some reliable quotes?/See answer in discussion box

Reference: <i>reprise</i>

Reference information:
The contexte is different from yours but this extract defines reprise rather well, I think.

Dès lors que la survenance d'un risque... ou d'une charge apparaît comme probable, la collectivité provisionne sur l'exercice en cours, c'est-à-dire qu'elle enregistre... une dotation... d'un montant égal au risque (évalué) ou à la charge estimée. Elle crédite simultanément un compte de bilan (passif) pour le même montant.
Puis, lorsque le risque ou la charge se réalise (sur un exercice ultérieur), la collectivité constate la charge réelle et effective... dans son résultat comptable et budgétaire. En parallèle, elle effectue la « reprise » de la provision constatée antérieurement... en débitant le compte de bilan mouvementé initialement.

It looks like 'write-back' mentioned in your intro could apply here, but I'll leave that to specialists.

agree  Daryo: a word with more than one meaning - quelle surprise! And a right pain in the neck - you have to pay attention to this annoying thing called context to decide which one is the right one...
