I use TSheets to import Time into QBO and run payroll using QBO Full Service Payroll (FSP). FSP only allows one class to be used per employee on each payroll run. However, there are times when the wages need to be allocated across multiple classes. Ive learned this is a limitation of QBO (I could adjust the entry in QBD). My question, what is the best way to allocate the wages across multiple classes once the payroll has been run?
I have a similar situation. We have 1 employee that is a Sales Rep and works between two locations and two classes. As of now, his Class and Location are both A and his Wage Expense Account is Indirect Job Overhead-Sales (we use different accounts for different groups of employees). It appears that the only way I can divide his payroll is to either make a journal entry as you have suggested or to add him again as an additional employee with a slight variation to his name and have each name assigned one of the class/locations. This way he would appear as two separate employees and receive two paychecks. I feel a journal entry might be easier.
If I want to divide his payroll between our two classes and two locations, is the below how I would make the journal entry?
Debit: Indirect Job Overhead-Sales (100% of his payroll) Class A, Location A
Credit: Indirect Job Overhead-Sales (50% of his payroll) Class A, Location A
Credit: Indirect Job Overhead-Sales (50% of his payroll) Class B, Location B
