How to read your PMP payslip
Your payslip is a document that summarises your pay and deductions for a given period. It will show your:
-gross pay (before deductions)
-net pay (after deductions)
-rate of pay
-deductions (e.g. income tax, national insurance, pension contributions)
Most employers will give payslips to their employees on or before payday. If you’re an employee and you don’t receive a payslip, you should ask your employer for one.
Payslips can be issued in paper or electronic format. If you’re an employee and you would like to receive your payslip electronically, you should ask your employer if this is possible.
What information is included in your payslip
Your payslip shows your:
-bonuses and commissions
-federal and state taxes
retirement plan contributions 401(k), 403(b), etc.
Your net pay is your income after all deductions have been taken out.
