Hi Cassandra-Brack, the locations for wages expenses on P&L report are based on the Chart of Account setting in your Payroll setting session. If you have set up locations in Payroll, the expenses would go to specified locations according to the setup. To fix this, please review your pay run journals from the past and assign locations on the expense line. Please let us know if you require further assistance on this.
I have had a look at the most recent pay run journals, and there doesn't appear to be an easy way to identify which location majority of the expenses are for (i.e. there are small amounts separated to the location which have allocated, but a large portion of the journal/expense is not specified and therefore cannot easily be split). Each employee is set up as having been allocated to a location, and it would appear that the pay run is being processed so that the expenses should be going to a specific location (see screenshot attached). I'm not overly familiar with the payroll function in Quickbooks, but it looks as if it should be correct, i.e. hourly earnings are being allocated to either Sydney or Melbourne. Please advise if this is not being done correctly, though.
Hi Cassandra-Brack, Thank you for getting back to us on this and thank you for the screenshot. Looking at the screenshot, the first thing I can pick up is the earning. If your employee worked 48 hours. 24 in Sydney and 24 in Melboure (for example), you should have 2 seperated earning lines for this employee in the pay run, so the total earnings would split into 2 lines with different locations in the pay run journals. I have found 2 articles from Payroll support that might be useful for you:
