Glad to have you here on the Community page, @Emma40.

 

For the basic or standard payroll, the pay category can be created within the employee information or settings.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Click on Employees at the left pane, then select Employees next to Payroll.
  2. Tap on the employee's name from the result.
  3. Next to the employee's name, click on Actions, then select Additional Pay.
  4. Choose an additional pay type from the result. If you wish to, you can re-name the type on whatever you want to appear on payslip.

When running payroll, edit the employee, add the payment type and manually input the full amount being paid.

 

I'm also adding this article in case you need tips about managing pay categories for QuickBooks Online Advanced Payroll.

 

Post again if you have any other questions. I'm a few clicks away to help. Have a good day!

I have been looking for a query that matches mine - when I do these instructions, it only lets me add the 'Furlough Employee Pay' payment to one person. It doesn't come up as a category for the next person, and then when I try to add it the same way, it says that I have already created a category called that. Am I looking in the wrong place for categories that I have already created?

Hi Daniel,

 

Thanks for joining this thread - once you've added this pay type on one employee you'll need to enable it on the other employees individually by going to the Employee's settings > Actions > Added Pay > Turn on the switch against the new category listed.
