What is a net pay addition?

Net pay additions are funds provided in addition to wages. This most often includes bonuses, but it can also refer to a variety of other payments. This includes:

  • Severance
  • Vacation
  • Back pay
  • Overtime
  • Commission payments, depending on how a company handles commission

These additions are taxed and treated differently by the IRS because they are considered supplemental wages. If you award or supply your employee with any of the above payments, you will need to add it as an addition within the payroll software.
