Accrued vacation

I do not want to accrue vacation for salaried employees in QuickBooks Online but it doesn't appear to give me that option. How do I stop accrued vacation posting in QuickBooks?

Hey there dlcook47,


Thanks for reaching out to us here. QuickBooks Payroll is a great tool to have. It helps keep track of the hours your employees worked. I would be happy to provide some information on accrued vacation.


Follow these steps to remove accrued vacation for salaried employees:


1- Head to the Payroll tab and select Employees

2- Select the employee in question

3- In the Vacation policy section, click Edit

4- Under Vacation policy, use the drop down arrow to select Don't track vacation in QuickBooks


I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out here.

Thanks for that but the option to select "Don't track vacation" does not show up. Is there something wrong with my payroll program?

Hi dlcook

I guess the question is; why wouldn't you?

This is a liability on your books, money owed to your employees and should be represented on your financial statements.  

Can you clarify - are you attempting to change it so that vacation pays out each pay period?
