What to include
Payslips must show:
- pay before any deductions (‘gross’ wages)
- deductions like tax and National Insurance
- pay after deductions (‘net’ wages)
- the number of hours worked, if the pay varies depending on time worked
Payslips can also include information like your employee’s National Insurance number and tax code, their rate of pay, and the total amount of pay and deductions so far in the tax year.
You may be able to produce payslips using your payroll software, if it has this feature. You can use different software if it does not.
You can either print payslips to give to your employees, or you can send them electronically.
Employees have certain rights relating to payslips and what they must include.
