OK, I think that I understand now.
It is the document that the personel administration of my employer sends
me in the first week of every month with the details of the salary that
they deposited on my bank account the week before (around the last
working day of every month). It is called "loonbrief" in Dutch.

No, I don't think that I have ever seen such a thing in Gnucash.
But a quick google search on "gnucash pay slip" turned up this:
It seems to describe the Canadian situation so you may have to adapt it
to your local payroll tax laws.
