I just need to know if my work is correct. I am working in Excel and I need to find the formula for the expense Wages. I am not sure if wages consists of the gross pay or the net pay.

Does anyone have any suggestions what it might be? I was thinking it would be for the gross pay.

Wages are what the company pays to employ the person, which is more than the net pay the employee receives (because of various withholding employee deductions from the paycheck).

There are additional company expenses related to employing a person, besides gross pay. These would be the employer's contribution to social security, health plans and a 401K or pension plan (if any).

If you have not been told to include these, assume they are zero and use gross pay in figuring company cash flow.
