What is Salary Breakup?
Salary breakup is the detailed statement total compensation paid to all employees during a specific period of time. It includes heads like basic salary, DA, HRA, Conveyance, medical, special allowance, bonus, TA, etc. It also includes deductions like Contribution to provident fund, profession tax, TDS, Advance Salary, etc.
In simple terms, it is the bifurcation of salary a company pays to its employees. It bifurcates the amount a company pays against basic, DA, HRA, etc.
Purpose of Salary Breakup Report
The main purpose of preparing a salary breakup report is to know the amount of compensation paid under each head. This bifurcation helps the employer to understand the percentage of the compensation they are paying against their income as well as sales turnover.
Moreover, this further helps the management to makes necessary changes to their pay structure to improvise employee retention.
Components of Salary Breakup Report
To prepare a Salary Breakup Report, historical data will be required. Hence, first of all, we need monthly Salary Sheets for the past months.
Each salary sheet bifurcates the paid and unpaid compensations. Extract the monthly totals of each component and insert it in the yearly breakup report.
There are 3 major components of Salary: Basic Salary, Allowances, and Deductions.
Basic salary is the fixed amount that an employer pays to an employee without adding any allowances or subtracting any deductions. Bonuses, overtime, dearness allowance, etc are not a part of basic pay. It is a part of your take-home amount.
It is the base of your pay structure. Other components of your total pay are calculated depending on your basic pay. These components include Annual Gratuity, Employee Contribution to Provident Fund or ESIC are determined according to your basic.
Allowances are the financial benefits an employer provides above the Basic Salary to his employees. These allowances differ based on company policy, industry, job profile, and department.
Allowances may include the following:
Basic Salary along with the allowances forms your Gross Salary. Hence, Basic + Allowances = Gross Salary. If there are any kind of reimbursements, you need to add them to the gross pay.
Employee Deductions are the amounts subtracted from an employee’s gross pay to reach net pay. Deductions include the following:
Employee Contribution To PF
Employee Contribution to EPS
ESI – If applicable
TDS – Tax Deducted At Source
The employer contribution to PF and ESI is not a part of the take-home salary. But it will be added to the salary breakup report. Employee contribution to PF and EPS will be deducted from the salary.
Professional Tax is a tax that a government levies on professionals based on their salary/monthly income. TDS is the income tax that an employer deducts from the salary of the employee. Hence, the employer deposits this collected tax to the IT Department.
