SALALY 給与

Q. Can you tell us
more about salary?

A.Salary in Japan consists mainly of monthly salary plus bonuses. Social insurance and tax payments etc. are deducted from the (gross) amount payable before the remainder is actually received by the employee as take-home pay. Bonuses are usually paid twice per year (in June and December), and the amount will vary a lot depending on the employee's performance and the company's performance―in some years, no bonus is paid at all, while in other years 4 months' worth of wages may be received.
