If you are a person who is self employed, then you can run your business according to your wishes. You don’t have to work for someone anymore and you can dictate your own salary based on how much you want to work. But it has its own drawbacks. One drawback is not being able to prove your income if you need to apply for a loan or a credit card. You can either should your entire bank account to prove your income, or create a pay slip for yourself.
Regular employee paychecks come with a detailed pay slip which shows how much they earned, how much deductions are to be taken and the final amount which they take home. A template is used by employers to document that number of hours you have worked, your gross income and you net income after deductions are paid. Self employed people have only themselves who know how much they earn and so if they are applying for a loan, it can be difficult to prove your income. But, if you use a template to create your own payslip complete with all of the appropriate tax deductions, you will have real proof of income. It is possible to create a pay stub similar to what employees receive which has complete company name and address on it. If you do this on a weekly basis then you can then have proof income whenever you need it. Proof of income available is important even if you don’t really write out a paycheck for yourself.
If you are looking for a pay slip template you can look for it in any local office supply store and the library. But, since most self employed people and small businesses rely on a computer to track all their finances, you should look online for your templates. An online search would reveal many different types of templates that you choose from for your needs. You can then create a pay slip of your own which will show your gross income, taxes, deductions and your net pay, and you can create the same with your employees also. If you need to show proof of your income for a loan, then you can simply show all the pay slips that you have made for yourself through the weeks.
Through online templates, you will be able to provide some proof of your income if you are self employed and use it for whatever purpose your need it.
