941 LINE 1 NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES

When all else fails, update payroll.

 

The number of employees on tge 941 is for a single date, 12th of 3rd month of quarter so the Q1 records tge number of paychecks created within tge payroll run that includes 3/12. It is rare but possible to run payroll for the month but , say for just first 11 days and thus accyratevreport would be 0 employees. Check the payroll period that should include 3/12 and see if tge date us included

I get the same issue. I pay monthly on the 15th based on 11th previous month to 10th current month. The detailed payroll reports shows a range covering the 12th, but the number of employees on the 941 shows as zero. An example is attached from the payroll detail report showing the payroll date and what should be the range of coverage. I had never noticed until the PPP application review saw I had zero employees in the first quarter.

Thanks for joining in on the thread, rmcewen.

 

The same as john-pero said, the number of employees on Line 1 depend on the pay period that includes March 12 for Quarter 1. You can use this link for reference: How QuickBooks Populates The 941.

 

I'd also recommend updating the following to ensure that QuickBooks displays the correct data on your forms:
