Yes I already did that but qbo still excludes that employee from payroll And
tells me to update employee record but nothing to update
online chat with QBO today advised I upgrade from standard payroll!
Qbo payroll is not up to the job if it cannot handle a life event
Thanks for the clarification, @electrohm.
You'll want to exclude the employee first from the payroll before you can make the changes. This way, you'll be able to update the employee's profile.
Once done, update your employees information again. You can refer to the steps provided by my colleague MirriamM above.
Additionally, do check our Employees and Payroll page for reference. There, you can read some of our great articles that can guide you in managing your payroll effectively.
Please let me know if there's anything else you need help with. I'm just a post away from you. Take care and stay safe.
I have found this not to be possible and this has been confirmed by Quickbooks. It is apparently only possible at the start of the Tax year. In the meantime one of our employees is paying hundreds of pounds NI that they should not be paying..... If they get enough complaints it might get fixed I was informed.....
WOW... this is now over a year later and this is still a problem... so I now have an employee paying hundreds of pounds per month that he does not owe and I have no way to resolve this. And no idea how to manage it as a workaround... and no idea what to say to him.
Will this get refunded by HMRC automatically?
Will he lose the money?
How can I defend our company from accusations that we are using a non-compliant payroll?
