What are Gross Wages

 Gross wages is the compensation to laborers for getting their services. It may be on the basis of hours or units of production. In India, we can calculate gross wages by totaling the payment to workers. Gross salaries are calculated by totaling the payment to employees. But, in USA, both payment to worker and employees will be included in Gross wages. Only top level managerial salaries are calculated separately there. Fees for services, tips, and similar income are also included in gross wages. It is well established that income from personal services must be included in the gross income of the person who performs the services. Mere assignment of the income does not shift the liability for the tax

Accounting of Gross Wages 

  Gross Wages are the expenses for those who get services. So, after adjustments, gross wages are shown in the income statement. It also helpful to calculate cost of goods sold and gross margin because these expenses are the part of direct expenses. That is the reason, these expenses are included in prime cost.

Gross wages are the part of income for those who provide labor services. For calculating their income tax, we deduct different deductions and rebates from wages plus other source incomes.
