Note On Salary Slip

Salary slip is a single page document that lists the details of the salary of an employee. Details depend on the type of contract between the organization, and the employee. A salary slip is mostly in the form of a table because it is easy to understand. Salary slip contains the details of the employee, and his/her type of contract. After that, a complete break up of salary is mentioned as it was mentioned in the contract. For example, transport allowance, medical allowance, phone allowance, insurance policy, deduction from advance salary (if an employee received salary in advance), tax deductions, and in the end, a total salary that an employee will receive is mentioned. In addition, if a company pays some percentage from company profit, it is also written. If an employee was given loan based on his request, the deductions are also mentioned on the salary slip according to the loan agreement.


In a salary slip, gross salary, and net salary both are mentioned. Gross salary is the salary from which tax is not yet deducted. When tax is deducted from gross salary, it becomes net salary, and this net salary is received by an employee
