What are additions and deductions?

Additions and deductions are used to add positive and negative pay elements other than the basic pay. Typical additions or deductions are sales commissions, bonuses, dividends or payroll giving.

Like basic pay, additions and deductions might be subject to tax, national insurance, or pension deductions.
