The Coople payslips contain all the details about your salary, as well as all statutory deductions and supplements. It can be a bit complicated to understand exactly what is listed on your payslip. So, we'll give you a quick overview here.

Let’s start with the basics:

  • Coople is your legal employer.

    Even if you work for different companies, your salary payment comes exclusively from us.

  • We pay monthly.

    You will be paid monthly for all jobs that you complete between the first and last day of the month and that have been confirmed by company. Your payslip will show the period in question as a total period.

  • We pay on the 5th working day of the following month.

  • We send your payslip by email every month.

    You can also view your previous payslips at any time in the app via the profile menu under Payslips.

Let's take a closer look at the payslip:

  1. In each row you can see the shifts you have worked and your supplements (e.g. Sunday shifts, additional payments). The columns show the statutory supplements for holidays, public holidays, and the 13th month's pay included in the hourly wage.

  2. Gross salary: this amount is the wage total of all your jobs in the corresponding month. For each job, the number of working hours is multiplied by the hourly wage.

    Please note: the gross salary corresponds to the hourly wage that is displayed in the app for each job. It also includes the statutory supplements for holidays, public holidays, and the share of the 13th month's pay.

  3. Deductions & contributions: Here you can find all social security deductions from your gross salary in accordance with the Swiss legal requirements:

    • your old-age pension (AHV, BVG)

    • unemployment insurance (ALV1 or ALV2)

    • accident and health insurance (NBU, KTG)

    In accordance with the social insurance authority (SVA), side jobs are not billed up to annual earnings of CHF 2300.- (AHV and ALV). The necessary deductions were made anyway because we cannot assess whether this threshold will be exceeded until the end of the year. Should this threshold not be exceeded in connection with other jobs, you will get back the appropriate amount after the final settlement at the end of the year.

    Please note: you may not see it on your payslip, but as your legal employer, we also make our contribution to your social insurances. For AHV, BVG, KTG and ALV, 50% of the contributions are paid by the employer.

    The last contribution in the list of insurance benefits is the GAV (Collective Employment Contract) contribution. These contributions flow, among others, into the Temptraining training fund. If you would like to start further training in the near future, it is worth checking your entitlement to Temptraining benefits.

  4. Net salary: this amount is made up of the gross salary minus the total of deductions.

  5. Rounding: if your net salary has an impossible decimal place (e.g., 82 centimes), the amount is rounded up or down accordingly.

  6. Amount paid: we will pay you this amount according to the payment details in your Coopler profile. It corresponds to your Coople monthly salary.
