Employee Vacation Time

How can I pay commission only and still have employees accrue vacation time?

Employee Vacation Time

I know an alternative to do this, Brian123.

When you set up employees with Commission Only pay, they won't be able to accrue any vacation hours. I'd suggest creating an hourly pay so you can include the vacation time.

Here's how:

  1. Click Workers on the left panel, and then select Employees.
  2. Click the employee's name on the list.
  3. In the How much do you pay Employee? section, click the + Add additional pay types link.
  4. Check the box for Vacation Pay, enter the employee's accrual amount, and then click OK.
  5. Check the box for Commission.
  6. Click Done.
  7. Follow the same steps for the rest of the employees that you need to pay.

When you create the paychecks for these employees, just leave the boxes for REGULAR PAY HRS and VACATION PAY HRS blank. Then, enter the commission pay in the box provided for it.

You can check out the screenshots I added below.
