It is sweldo time again!
I bet most of you can’t wait (I can’t. I practically squandered mine – just a little percentage lang naman, honestly…)and are itching to go to the nearest mall and withdraw at an ATM Machine.
But have you ever wondered about those confusing numbers and shocking deductions from your hard-earned salary or you are contented with what you can withdraw?
It is time to figure out your payslip amidst the number jumble.
Payslips are more than twice-a-month reminder of how much you are earning. Besides stating your salary for that payroll period like what is in Nominak, it also contains other income not included in your basic monthly salary, such as unused vacation leaves, deductions that are dependent on company policy and deductions that are mandated by the Philippine government such as Philhealth, Social Security System, and Pag-IBIG
Your payslip may also be used as documentation when applying for loans or credit accommodation, insurance and other purposes where proof of income is required.
