Employer Contributions



We have an employee that we pay 80% of his medical insurance. He has the plan in his own name and we just want to pay him $43/pay period. Is there a way to set this up in the payroll system? I filled out the employer contribution section and how much should be designated to him per pay period but when i ran payroll it is not showing up on his pay stub and he did not get the additional $43.

Employer Contributions

Hello there, @Anonymous,


Only the gross pay, taxes withheld, deductions, and net pay are shown on the employee's paystub.


You can open the Payroll Details report to see paycheck details, including amounts, taxes, and employer contributions.


About the $43.00, if this amount is non-taxable, you can create a reimbursement pay type for the additional pay type.


Here's how:

  1. Select Workers from the left menu, then select Employees.
  2. Click the employee.
  3. Go to the Pay section.
  4. Click the edit (pencil) icon beside Pay.
  5. Under How much do you pay, go to Even more ways to pay.
  6. Click Add reimbursement type.
  7. Enter the description of the pay type, then enter the amount.
  8. Click Donereimbursement1.PNG

That answers your concern for today.
