If you have been furloughed due to coronavirus, this month's payslip will be the first one where furloughed wages will take effect. Here are 7 things to look for: 

1. Make sure your personal information and payroll number is correct.

2. Your pay slip should still show your tax and national insurance deductions.

3. It should also show any pension contributions you would usually make, as well as other payments you've authorised including loans.

4. Check your pay is accurate - where applicable, it should show 80 per cent of your gross regular pay.

5. If your employer has agreed to top up your salary to the full 100 per cent, your pay slip should look no different.

6. As furlough pay is capped at £2,500, your pay slip shouldn't show a higher amount unless your employer has agreed to make up  your wages.

7. Some bonuses, commission and overtime can be included in your furlough pay.
