Comp Time

Good day, @Anonymous,


I've got the steps you need so you can add and print your employee's paid time off on his/her pay stub.


To start off, you'll first need to create a payroll item for the vacation and sick pay. Then add them to your employee's profile to track their vacation and sick hours.


Here's how:

  1. Go to Lists, then select Payroll Item Listvacandsick1.PNG
  2. Right-click anywhere, then select Newvacandsick2.PNG
  3. Select Custom Setup, then Nextvacandsick3.PNG
  4. Select Wage, then Nextvacandsick4.PNG
  5. Select either Hourly Wages or Annual Salary for your employee's wages, then Nextvacandsick5.PNG
  6. Select Sick or Vacation Pay, then Nextvacandsick7.PNG
  7. Enter the name for the item, then Nextvacandsick8.PNG
  8. Choose the expense account you want for the item, then click Finishvacandsick9.PNG

Once the setup is done, you can now perform the following solution outlined below:

  1. Change the company's sick and vacation defaults.
  2. Add the sick and vacation accruals on an employee profile.
  3. Add the sick and vacation time on a paycheck.
  4. Get the accrued sick and vacation time to appear on pay stubs.

Please read through this article for the detailed steps with the solution above: Set up and pay sick and vacation time.
