How do you add overtime?

I can provide you steps on how to add overtime, jameslambert.


Let's add first the Overtime Pay as an additional pay type. Here's how:


  1. Go to the Workers tab and select Employees.
  2. Select the name of the employee.
  3. Under How much do you pay (Employee's name)?, select Add additional pay types.
  4. From the list of pay types, check the Overtime Pay checkbox.
  5. Hit Done. Select Done again.

Once done, a field for overtime hours will reflect when you run payroll.



Please let me know if you have other concerns. Have a great day!

How do I over write the over time pay rate for a higher rate? This client pays his employee $35/hr flat rate for the extra hours worked. When I change the rate it goes back to the regular O/T rate (1.5) which QBO calculates.
