  • Employer monthly social contributions: In every country, there are social contributions the employer is required to pay in relation to the employee’s salary.
  • On Payslip Benefits: These are costs associated with providing certain local benefits to employees. These benefits are either paid directly to the employee or tracked on their payslip for compliance reasons. 
  • Management fee: This is the cost for Remote’s services. We bill either monthly, annually or via contracted Team Deals. 
  • Off Payslips costs: These are other benefits which are provided to the employee but not paid directly to the employee or included on their payslip for compliance reasons. An example of this is health insurance. 
  • Other costs: These include special tax rulings, health check fees, workers' compensations or other taxes which are not paid as part of the payroll process. It may also include other special costs which we cannot enter through the payroll process. 
  • Adjustments: This shows the corrections being made for previous invoices. Since the customer has already made payment for the invoice, we cannot issue a credit rebill for the invoice. Instead, the necessary adjustments are made on a subsequent invoice.
