What is the use of giving a salary slip for a driver?
Your driver may not want it. But it is still wise to provide a salary slip for various reasons:
- Record purposes
- Tax purposes
- Useful to the driver
This is a professional record keeping method. Later on there will be no question of I got lesser money than agreed, or I did not get paid for two months etc. You will be able to refer to the receipts to show how much was paid as salary for which month quite easily.
Tax Purposes or Salary reimbursement
If you are part of a company reimbursing you for the salary paid to the driver then this is your proof of making this payment. Also if you are claiming tax deductions on paying for the driver, then these receipts are important.
Useful to the driver
This document can be very useful to the driver in a number of ways. If they are applying for a loan, or for a part time course etc. Plus it gives them a feeling of satisfaction to be getting a receipt of some kind for the good work they have done.
In India, it is not mandatory to provide a salary slip to a driver if he is in your personal employment. If he is part of your company and on your company’s payroll, then it is mandatory to give him a pay slip.
This depends on cities, tenure of driver and the number of hours/days you need to them for. A full time driver in India can earn anywhere between Rs.6000 to Rs.30,000.
