The official salary receipt model is set out in the Order of 27 December 1994, approving the individual salary receipt model, updated on 12 November 2014 to include the worker’s business costs in the payroll.
The current model is established in Order ESS/2098/2014. In this link you can download the official model in PDF.
The annex of this order establishes all the data that the individual receipt justifying the payment of wages must contain:
- Identification of the employer.
- Identification of the worker.
- The settlement period.
- The accruals -wage and non-wage payments-.
- Deductions – worker’s contribution to Social Security contributions.
- Personal income tax -IRPF-.
- Value of products received in kind and other deductions.
- The total to be deducted, the total liquid to be received, signature and stamp of the company, date and “receipt”.
However, wage receipts which, without eliminating any of the items included in the official model or altering their denomination, contain modifications of a purely formal nature or include additional elements of information for the worker on the remuneration received, will also be valid.
In this respect, the Supreme Court ruling of 17 January 2019 is very significant, which establishes that the payslip must comply with the principle of transparency, in the sense that: “The content of the payslip must be transparent, that is, it must be easy to check the items paid and the calculation and amount of each one of them by carrying out the minimum number of mathematical operations and without the need to record data which, although the worker is aware of them, are not communicated to him by the company”.
