- Method of payment , for example – direct into your bank / Cheque or Cash.
Employee Payroll Payslip – What should be on your payslip
Your payslip must show:
- Your earnings before and after any deductions
- The amount of any deductions that may change each time you’re paid, eg tax and National Insurance
Employers must also explain any deductions fixed in amount, eg repayment of a season ticket loan. They can choose to do this either on a payslip, or in a separate written statement.
This separate statement must be sent out before the first payslip. Employers must update this every year.
