Re: How to gross up a check in payroll?

It’s great to see you here, @gporche.

 

When you gross up a paycheck, it means to calculate the gross wages earned from a specified net pay amount. I can guide you on how to do it.

 

To start with, here’s the basic formula to gross up a paycheck:
net amount + flat tax amounts / (100% - total percent of taxes) = Gross


If you have already processed a paycheck for the employee, here’s how to gross up a paycheck:

  1. Go to the Workers menu.
  2. Click the drop-down arrow beside Run Payroll.
  3. Choose Bonus Only.
  4. Select As gross pay, then click Continue.
  5. Mark the employees whose paycheck you want to gross-up.
  6. Enter the gross-up amount. 
  7. Click Preview Payroll.

To gross up prior payrolls, you can check this article for more detailed steps: Calculate and enter gross-up prior payrolls.

Re: How to gross up a check in payroll?

Thank you juVielL!  This is good info.  I wish there was a way that I didn't have to do the calculation.  When I used Desktop version, all I had to do was put in net amount and the QB desktop figured the gross!  I guess we have to tradeoff some benefits for others!  I actually input random numbers until I reached the net I was seeking.  It didn't take but a couple of minutes.

 

The article was very helpful.  Thank you so much!
