How can I pay a monthly auto allowance when I have a biweekly payroll? Can I set up a separate payroll for just the monthly allowances on a set day of the month?

Hello, susanwellborn50. 

 

I'm more than happy to assist you with setting up a monthly auto allowance. Follow these steps below:

 

  1. Click on the Workers tab
  2. Click Employees
  3. Choose the desired employee you want to add the allowance to
  4. Next to Pay, click the Pencil 
  5. scroll down to number 4 (How much do you pay...)
  6. Click the additional pay types pencil 
  7. add "Other Pay type" title it whatever you want 
  8. Save

Now that employee will have an empty box next to their name when you run your payroll. You can leave it blank on the semi-weekly payroll weeks. But when you want to pay them the Auto allowance, you can enter the amount in that box. 

If you need more help with this or anything else, please don't hesitate to reach out. 

 

Have a great evening.
