First months pay pro rata

Hello,

 

I am using QBO Payroll for the first time.

I have a new starter joining midway through the month. The employee will be paid a salary at the end of each month.

I have tried testing QBO to ensure that the pay run will only have half the salary (roughly) in the first month, but it appears to be calculating the full months pay. 

I'm not sure if I have missed something or it is not possible to do this?

 

Thanks in advance for your help

Hello agams,

 

Thanks for your post!

 

QuickBooks Online Payroll does not calculate pro-rata for you - you will need to enter their salary for this period when running the payroll.

 

The easiest way to enter this as lump sum amount would be to have the employee set up as salaried - this will then allow you to overwrite the amount when you go to run the payroll, and you can change the employee back to hourly after you have ran this Smiley Happy
