Hi there, @ tiffanie-railexp.
In QuickBooks Online, you have two options on how to create a severance check. Enter a bonus only/commission only paychecks or through regular/unscheduled paycheck.
Based on the scenario, run the regular payroll and then make the severance pay for the employee. The process differs depending on the option selected.
Before doing so, you'll have to make your employee's status active again. Here’s how to make a bonus check to use for severance.
Now that the item is already setup, let’s create the paycheck.
However, if you opt to create a termination check, see the Create final employee paychecks guide. It provides an overview of how to make one as well as links for detailed instructions.
Let me know if you need further assistance while working in QBO. I’ll be right here to help and make sure you’re taken care of. Have a great rest of the day.
