How do I set up new pay types in the payroll

Good day @dloftus.

 

I hope all is going well. I'm happy to help with steps to add pay types to your payroll. 

 

Here's how to create an hourly payroll item:

  1. Go to the Employees menu and choose Manage Payroll Items
  2. Select New Payroll Item
  3. Click Custom Setup and then Next.
  4. Select the Payroll Item Type (Wage) > Next
  5. Click the Wage payroll item type (Hourly Wages) > Next
  6. Select the item for regular, overtime, sick, or vacation pay. Then, Next
  7. Enter a name for the pay type. Click Next
  8. Select the correct Expense account we just set up or an existing one.
  9. Hit Finish.

Here is a list of supported pay types and deductions  for your reference. 

 

I'm happy to help with any additional questions about adding pay types or anything else. Just hit me up anytime!

How do I set up new pay types in the payroll

I have these payroll types set up but when my employees clock in on quickbooks time, it's sending it to the default Regular Pay account. How do I get different employees to default to their particular pay type?
