The wage bill is the total sum of gross wages of an establishment (excluding employers' contributions). The notion of wage bill is used in the statistics produced by the information system entitled "Local knowledge of the productive system" (Clap). Wages correspond to the salaries and bonuses of paid staff in the course of the trading year.
For establishments which have both civil servants and "private" employees, the wages are added together according to the same rules as for the workforce at 31 December.
Wages and salaries paid in kind, like employers' contributions, are not included in the gross remuneration of employees. Employee contributions are, however.
