What is a Gehaltsabrechnung? What does it look like?

A pay slip (Gehaltsabrechnung) shows how much you earned, and what contributions you have paid. You get it from your employer every month. It looks like this.

You can use your Gehaltsabrechnung to find your tax ID (Steueridentifikationsnummer) and your social insurance number (Sozialversicherungsnummer).
