Payroll

 

an accounting document designed for recording payments of wages to workers and to clerical and professional employees. It can be compiled for the enterprise or organization as a whole and for individual shops and sections, according to categories of employees, pay lists, or individual pay statements. In contrast to the other documents used in disbursing wages (pay lists or orders), the payroll gives only the employee’s identification number, surname, first name and patronymic, and the amount of take-home pay. The payroll form also contains a column for signatures acknowledging receipt of the money.
