I'm doing a late election S-Corp for 2018, and I need to do a manual payroll for the entire year split half each in Nov and Dec. How do I override the normal payroll?

Hi erin3,

 

When you run payroll in QuickBooks Online, you’ll have to select the pay period based on the schedule set up for the employees. For example: Weekly, Bi-Weekly and Monthly.

 

Since we're unable to select a half-a-year schedule to record the lump sum payroll amount, you can use the Commission Only option. This will help us override your normal payroll process.

 

Before doing so, you must set the pay type in the employees section.

 

Here are the steps:

  1. On the left panel, click Workers.
  2. From the Employees page, click the employee's name.
  3. Click the pencil icon next to Pay.
  4. Under How much do you pay (Employee Name), click the pencil icon.
  5. Check the Commission box.
  6. Click Done.

Then, go back to the Employees window and click the drop-down arrow next to Run Payroll. Select the Commission Only and enter the pay details.

 

You can also check this article for more information: Pay Commission Separate From a Regular Paycheck.

 

For adding prior payrolls,  I'd recommend contacting our Payroll Support Specialists. They have more resources available to record the information.
