English term or phrase: [URGENT] F I C A CAN PEN SAL
There is not much context available as this is an abbreviation in a financial statement (GAIN/LOSS).

Also you can find:
- WAGES SHIP & REC
what does the REC stand for?

- ASS UNEMPLY HLTH INS
what does the ASS stand for?
maybe assessment?

- GAIN/LOSS DISP F.A.
what does the F.A. stand for? Maybe Factory Automation?

Explanation:
without more context, even as to what type of business this is, it's hard to say, but here are a couple of guesses that might help you further:
F.A.: Gain/Loss from disposal of fixed
assets
ASS : Associates Unemployment Health Insurance (as in "sales associates")
Wages, Shipping & Receiving
FICA CAN PEN SAL:
FICA is of course just FICA - it's Federal withholding amount in the U.S. for social security
CAN - Is this company Canadian?
PEN - pension?
SAL - salaries/salaried employees?
Hope this helps some!
