Thanks everyone for your answers! I'm going for this one as the context is employment as an outside advisor (after already officially retiring). Thanks again! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: I think the person who receives this payment is not officially on the payroll of the employer, that's why they don't use the word salary. However, they have to find a way to justify the payment, and give it a name. I sugget to translate it based on the context, for example, according to what the person's duties under his/her employment contract.
