What is Gross Pay Means?

The cost to the company (CTC) is supplied as a gross salary to the employees who are compensated for their services. Cost to the company is the sum that the business must spend on a certain employee for a given year. But it’s important to keep in mind that costs to the business are never equal to what an employee gets paid.
