A pay stub is a document companies provide their employees with that details their income. Also commonly known as a pay slip, wage slip, or paycheck stub, a pay stub can be sent as a soft or hard copy.

Basic information on a pay stub includes:

  • - Company information including name and address
  • - Employee information including name and address
  • - Employee income information including pay period, pay date, and pay frequency
  • - Any deductions such as income tax, union dues, and life insurance

Unlike salaried workers, self-employed people don’t typically receive paychecks. But they may sometimes require one, such as when applying for mortgages or credit cards.

In most cases, a self-employed person’s pay stub will look the same as an employees paystub, but there are a couple of main differences to pay attention to:

The company and employee information fields will be the same The pay period, frequency, and amount may not be consistent as self-employed people may be paid per project instead of per hour

There are many different ways to create your own pay stub, each catering to different needs.

If design is not a priority and you want more control over the information that goes on your pay stub, use software like Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Free web-based programs like Google Doc and Google Sheets are also great options.

To go beyond the standard black and white and incorporate some design, there are plenty of free visual tools online that let you customize and get creative with your pay stubs.
