How to set up Paid Holiday Leave payroll item using QBD Assisted Payroll?

Our company uses QBD Pro with Assisted Payroll. We're implementing a Paid Holiday Leave policy that will pay employees for 8 hrs at their current rate when we are closed on certain holidays (no work is done on these days). The pay isn't accrued and is separate from their vacation. What type of payroll item should I use when setting this up?

You can set up an hourly wage and call it Holiday Pay.  It is still compensation (wages), but will show on the paycheck and paystubs as a separate item from worked hours.

Won't that cause them to accrue sick leave and vacation for hours that weren't worked?

Hi @Curious3,

 

Since you mentioned that you're using QuickBooks Desktop Assisted Payroll, I recommend contacting our Payroll Support team for assistance. 

 

They can help you set up a holiday leave payroll item. Here's how:

  1. On your QuickBooks homepage, go to the Help menu.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Tap the Contact us button.

You can view this article for a list of deadlines and important quarter and year-end dates: Deadlines and important quarter and year-end dates for Assisted Payroll customers

No.  You just set up an hourly wage and name it Holiday Pay.  It is simply another hourly wage item with a different name.  I've been using Assisted Payroll since it was first introduced.  In fact, years ago when Assisted Payroll first came out, I was invited by Intuit to be their advocate at the Sleeter conference in Las Vegas.

 

Sick and vacation pay only accrue if you set up the accruals in the employee template.
