Re: Why doesn't the vacation paid out on each pay show on the sample cheque and add into the total
That's a great question! The sample cheque gives users a preview of how payroll items are laid out by QuickBooks Online's system while you're setting up employee profiles. While most aspects of payroll are included on the sample, it doesn't show everything. One of the things it doesn't show an example for is the vacation policy. I can see how that would be useful and I'll pass these thoughts to the product development team as feedback.
Rest assured that you're able to review your employees' pay cheques when you run payroll for real. As you go through the payroll process, you'll enter hours and be able to view the breakdown of the calculations before you complete the pay run. Check out our Payroll Hub to learn more about setting up and running payroll in both our Standard and Advanced payroll services.
