Can you get the payroll costs to show on a P&L by customer report? I added a project and posted the time activity to the project. Still doesn't show. Any ideas?

Let me guide you on how to show the payroll costs to show on the report, shanedean78.

 

Yes, there's an option on how to reflect the payroll costs in the Profit and Loss by Customer report. Let's make sure when creating a single timesheet we enter the Project name in the Customer/Project field.

The time activity will automatically populate when running an employee's payroll. Once you go to the Project page, the paycheck with the time activity will be posted in the Transactions tab.

One done, try running the report again. You can also customize it to show all the payroll costs transactions.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Go to Reports.
  2. Enter Profit and Loss by Customer in the search field.
  3. Tick the Customize button.
  4. Click Filter.
  5. Tap the Distribution Account drop-down and select all the Payroll Expenses account.
  6. Press Run report

For more details about customizing reports, check out this article: Customize reports in QuickBooks Online.

 

To learn more about managing your reports, refer to Run reports in QuickBooks Online article.

 

On the other hand, QuickBooks Online (QBO) is an accrual-based accounting. If you run the Projects report, they always default to an accrual basis. If you need to run a Cash basis, just manually choose it in the Report method field when running a report.

 

For future reference, I've included these articles to learn more about how to use the project feature in QBO:
