“Remuneration” means monthly fixed remuneration paid to an employee whether the amount is fixed or variable as stated in the employment contract written or otherwise.
If the employee has no salary and only receives a commission, the commission paid is considered as remuneration.
If the monthly salary is paid on a daily or hourly basis, the total monthly salary paid is considered as remuneration.
If the monthly salary changes due to the change in currency values, the total monthly salary paid is also considered as remuneration.
With effective from 1 January 2013, overtime allowance, allowances (variable amount paid monthly) and commission (variable amount paid monthly) are categorised as normal remuneration.
Only allowance and commission which not paid monthly are categorised as additional remuneration.
