Learn how to set up and track time off, vacation, and sick pay for your employees.
With QuickBooks Online Payroll and QuickBooks Desktop Payroll, you can set up and track the time your employees take. First, you’ll set up time-off policies like paid or unpaid time off, sick pay, and vacation pay. If you need to, you can add time off at any point if someone needs more.
Note: If your account integrates with QuickBooks Time, you can set up your time off policies there to match what you set up in your payroll account. You and your team members can track time off using QuickBooks Time, which will sync back to payroll.
