A salary history is a formal record of monies paid in the form of salary. It may include a range of expenses including package payments. By law, and for compliance with taxation requirements, a statutory limit applies to salary histories during which time records must be maintained.
Note: Salary histories are required to be complete, and the normal standard of information available is required to be basic payroll information with additional information as required.
For employees, the salary history is a 'ready reckoner' for issues related to entitlements, and a useful backup if their own records go missing.
