You can definitely add different hourly rates. Name them something unique so you are not confused. You may have to view the paychecks prior to creation to add the different rates in a payroll run. Of course online payroll is different from desktop

When doing pay check using online QB and payroll will it give option to choose or do I have to go time cards and change there?

In QBO edit your employee. There is a Add additional pay types li nm k that will allow you to add addiyional hourly rates. By default the second one will be labeled Hourly 2. Then use time cards to enter hours.

Welcome to the Community, @Westefk.


As mentioned by @john-pero, you can add a different hourly rate to the same employee. However, without a payroll subscription, the option to issue paychecks is unavailable.


Use a Journal Entry to do manual payroll in QBO. I recommend consulting an accountant on what specific accounts to use recording the transaction to ensure the accuracy of your books.


Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Plus icon and select Journal Entry.
  2. Choose the paycheck date.
  3. Enter the appropriate debit and credit for the account.

Check out this article for reference: Record payroll transactions manually.


This information should help you enter payroll transactions without a Payroll subscription in QuickBooks Online.


Let me know how this goes and if you have other questions. I’m more than happy to help. Have a great day!

I don’t see any option to add pay rate at all in QuickBooks on line just a billing rate. Please advise.

Hi Westefk,


You can only add additional pay rates to employees when you have payroll.

 

If your employee does different jobs and you record time activities, just enter the job rate in the Billable (/hr) field of the activity. You may also enter something in the Description field so you can easily recognize the rate. A job name, perhaps.
