Why are vacation accrued on a vacation payroll


I'm clearing the vacation bank from an employee (Paying 72,37 hours as seen on his previous slip and also edit Employee info) with no regular hours done. 


The problem is that on the pay slip for this period and employee I see that he accrued 4.3 hours on the 72.37 hours I an paying him. In my opinion, vacation should not be accrued on a vacation pay.


Can you advise on this.


Thank you.

Why are vacation accrued on a vacation payroll

Hi there, @Victor Lopera,


I can share some information about the vacation accrual in QuickBooks Onlne Canada.


The accrual of your employee's vacation time depends on how it is set up on their Employment profile. To review this, perform the steps below:


  1. From the Employees menu, then go to the Employees tab.
  2. Find the employee name and click on Edit.
  3. Go the the Employment menu then hover to the Vacation policy section.
  4. Under the Accrual method field, review the option you initially selected.

Please update me on the outcome, @Victor Lopera. I'll be around if you need further assistance with this.

I tried following what you wrote. 


But under vacation policy I do have .06 hours Per hours WORKED. So I dont know what to change so that when I pay his vacation hours, it does not calculate vacations on top of that.


Thank you,

Hi Victor. In order for me to get a better understanding of this situation, could you walk me through how you set up the vacation policy for your employee(s)? Feel free to send screenshots. Keep in that you can always cover any sensitive information since this is the Community.
