Using this payslip template

This payslip template comes with a how-to guide that includes an example of how to fill one out. In short, you’ll enter wages or salary earned, then note down deductions for things like tax and retirement.

There’s also a field on this payslip template where you can note down reimbursements. This might include repayments made to your employees for things like travel expenses.

The role of payslips

A payslip is given to employees at the end of each pay cycle. It shows them what they earned and where that money went – including how much they get to take home.
