Employee Pay

Hello all!

I'm new to Quickbooks and trying to figure it all out.

Recently, I ran payroll and paid employees for a regular 40 hour work week at their standard rate. However, some of our employees worked an offsite event and the additional hours (no overtime) was to be paid at a different rate. A separate colum was added to their paychecks to separate the offsite pay from the regular pay. 

We ran payroll, however; although the payments for the offsite event was calculated in our reports, the payments did not show on the employees paychecks.

Can anyone help?

Hello there, @Vrivers.


I'm glad to welcome you to the Community. It's my pleasure to help you with your payroll.


If your payments for the offsite event is showing in the Payroll Details report, it should also show on your employees' paychecks. Let's try to ensure first the correct setup for the item used for offsite payment. 


Here's how: 

  1. Go to Workers tab then select Employees.
  2. Choose the employee with additional hours at a different rate. 
  3. Click the pencil icon beside Pay.
  4. Go to Additional pay types and create another type of pay with a different rate. Once finished, click Done.

Once you run payroll for this employee, you will see a separate column for the other item at a different rate. Let's go ahead and compare the items on your report and your employees' paycheck. The net pay on the Payroll Detail Report should be the same as the paychecks created. 


That should do it. If ever you need assistance with the steps, you can always contact us for help.
