Compliment - Compliment is a formal respect to you. Sometimes is also informal. It is out of courtesy which a person says or delivers to you so that he can make you a remark for something. It is something like saying 'good', 'great' or something like that.

Complement - Complement is something which completes you. Let's take an example. Take a mobile phone. Without a good sim-card, a mobile phone is of no use because with it, you won't be able to communicate with anyone.
