Payroll Schedule

Hello mmcgeecpa,

 

QuickBooks Enterprise is a great resource for many business owners, bookkeepers, and accountants when it comes to managing the business books. With the Payroll add-on, it becomes even more versatile by allowing you to keep on top of running and calculating payroll. I'll absolutely help you with reactivating a payroll schedule.

 

There are certain items in QuickBooks, such as pay schedules, that don't get fully deleted when you make changes in the system. Rather, they become inactive, like you've mentioned. Reactivating them is often a matter of making sure you can see inactive items in your item lists and then reactivating them. I'll walk you through how.

  1. Select Lists from the top menu.
  2. Choose Pay Schedule List.
  3. Check the box at the bottom of the window Include inactive.
  4. Right-click on the desired schedule.
  5. Choose Make Payroll Schedule Active.

That's all it takes. Just like that, it'll be back in your payroll schedule list and you'll be able to assign it to employees for use during pay runs. Check out this article for more help with these tasks: Set up and manage payroll schedules

 

Give me a shout if you have more questions, but that should get you on your way. Have a great rest of your day!
