A pay stub is also known as a pay slip or a pay advice. A pay slip indicates the amount of salary that was deposited in an employee’s account. The stub contains the gross amount, deductions and the net amount. The main deductions on a stub are; insurance premiums, taxes, pension scheme deductions and the organization contributions. A stub may be used in taking loans, buying cars, renting real estate property and as a validation of payment.
