Is there a way to separate roll over sick time from regular sick time?

Hello there, @stephdyer.


Thanks for taking the time to reach out to us. I'm here to help and provide some insights about sick time in QuickBooks Online (QBO). 


Are you trying to separate the accrual and regular sick pay for your employee? If so, this option isn't available in QuickBooks. The Sick/Vacation accruals in QBO normally resets every year. However, you have the option to add last year's accruals into the current year by manually adding the numbers to the employee's current sick/vacation hours. 


To do this, you can follow the steps in this article: Change a vacation or sick pay policy


I can see how this feature would be helpful for you, I'd recommend sending feedback directly to our product developers for future updates.

Here's how you can send feedback: 

  1. Click the Gear Icon.
  2. Select Feedback
  3. Click Next and choose Feedback under Category option.
  4. Select Save

If you need further assistance on how to adjust employee's sick pay, I recommend calling our QuickBooks Online Support Team. They have additional tools to pull up your account and do a remote session. 


Here's how you can reach our phone support:
