How to read my German employer payroll report?

This article describes how employers in German can read the monthly company payroll report

German Payroll Journal

A wage journal contains detailed, selected payroll data for several employees that were created in a specific period or a selected payroll period.

It is used to:

  • Uncover errors that occur in the payroll run,
  • Sum up accounting data of an organizational unit,
  • Track data development over multiple billing periods and
  • to have an additional, detailed control medium for revisions.

The payroll journal can also be used as a release document for the final payroll (e.g. by an organizational unit) vis-à-vis the payroll office / payroll / tax consultant.
