Letter Templates

Zoho Payroll offers a versatile feature for generating two essential types of letter templates: the Salary Certificate Template, and Salary Revision Letter Template. These templates are designed to provide comprehensive information to employees and can be easily customized through various sections.

  • Salary Certificate Template

Salary Certificate Template

The Salary Certificate Template from Zoho Payroll is a comprehensive document that serves as an official confirmation of an employee’s earnings and employment details. The core information includes the Cost-to-Company (CTC) details, with a breakdown of monthly and annual earnings across various components such as Basic, House Rent Allowance, and Flexible Benefit Plans.

To send salary certificate letters to employees, you’ll have to enable and configure them. Here’s how:

  • Go to Settings on the left sidebar and select Templates.

Next, you can customise the following sections:

  • Customize Header: The header can be tailored to include the organization’s name, address, and other relevant details.
  • Upload Logo: Users have the option to upload their organization’s logo for a branded appearance.
  • Show Organization Address: The organization’s address can be displayed in the header for added context.

Pro-tip: To further personalise the organization address format, click Customise Format to insert placeholders that dynamically fill in the specific details. Common placeholders for addresses include {Street Address}, {City}, {State}, {Zip Code}, {Country}, and a lot more. This customization ensures that the address information is automatically populated based on the organization’s current details.

Manage Content

Once you’ve set up your header section, you can easily tweak the body of the letter to fit your needs. Click Manage Content to edit and format the letter.

You can also insert placeholders such as {employee name}, {current annual CTC}, etc., within the template, so that you won’t have to manually rewrite the entire letter for every employee.

Click Preview to review the letter with their latest changes before finalizing and sending it. The preview feature ensures that all customizations are accurately reflected.

Signature Details: Users can record the signature details, adding a personalized touch. You can upload the signature, and enter the closing salutation and signer details.

Footer Section: You have the flexibility to tailor the footer according to your preferences. Incorporate placeholders such as {Name}, {Email}, or {Address} to add a professional touch to the conclusion of your letter.

Once you customise the template, click Save and Enable.

Once you customise the letter template, you can choose to show to your employees in the Employee Portal. Here’s how:
