KK!HRSalary Certificate and salary slip, both connote the salary paid to an employee. The salary slip gives the actual salary being paid to the employee in question whereas salary certificate discloses the salary due to an employee assuming full attendance and without the voluntary deductions. While salary certificate is issued occasionally for certain purposes and bears signature of the issuing authority the salary slip is issued in routine every month and generally is an unsigned document. Salary slip is mentioned in statutes while salary certificate is a non-statutory concept.
It appears, the cash payment made to you is shown in separate account and may not be shown in books as salary expense. The payment you receive is consolidated salary. There is no prescribed format for consolidated salary as it has only one head i.e., salary payable indicating the net payable. As you are working in a small establishment, there is no practice of issuing salary slip.

AnonymousKK!HR...Thanks a lot for your input but I am still a bit confused.Well, the third party I mentioned earlier is Immigration Authority and I am still unclear about what I should ask my employer for : consolidated salary certificate OR salary slips (which is not issued generally in small businesses as you mentioned in last post ) ? So how should I prove my employment to this authority? Can you please send me a brief format for the consolidated salary certificate if that applies to my case?

KK!HRI think, it is better to seek 'Employment Certificate', which would indicate that you are serving the Dental Clinic and is paid consolidated salary amounting to ...........
I am not sure what would satisfy the Immigration Authority, would depend on the country in question, but an 'Employment Certificate' shall in general suffice to prove the bonafides of employment.
