Setting Up DAILY rate of Pay

Just wondering if it is possible in QB to set up employees at a daily rate of Pay instead of using Per Hours rate X No. of Hours worked?  If so, can you please advise on steps to set this up?

Many thanks!

Setting Up DAILY rate of Pay

Hi AL65,


Thank you for reaching out. 


Yes, you can set-up a daily rate of Pay by creating a new Pay Category. Pay Category can be created using the following steps: 

  1. Select Employees from the left-hand menu, then select the Payroll Settings tab
  2. Select Pay Categories (located under Pay Run Settings), Then select Add 
  3. Enter the Pay Category Name, then select Add
  4. Complete any relevant fields, then select Save.  (Note: Units can be hourly, annually, fixed, or Daily)
