Overtime hours

My client's employee wants to bank his overtime hours to use at a later date. How do I enter these to track when incurred and pay out when he wants to use them.

Re: Overtime hours

Hi there, Jodi Longtine.


Thanks for reaching out to us. Allow me to help provide some insights about the employee's overtime hours. 


Since the employee wants to use the overtime hours at a later date and QuickBooks doesn't have an option to hold the overtime hours accrual. You'll need to add a note on your employee's information so you'll be able to track the remaining accrual once you create a paycheck for your employee. 


To add a note, here's how:

  1. At the top menu bar, click Employees.
  2. Select Employee Center.
  3. Select the name of your employee.
  4. On the right side, click the Notes option.
  5. Click Manage Notes drop-down arrow. 
  6. Select Add New
  7. Type an information that will help you determine the overtime hours accrual of your employee. 
  8. Click OK

For additional reference, you can check this article: Create paychecks


If you need further assistance with the steps, I encourage you to contact our QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Support Team. They have additional tools to pull up your account and do a remote session.


Here's how you can contact our payroll support:

  1. Select QuickBooks Desktop Help from the Help menu.
  2. You can also press F1 on your keyboard to bring up the same Help Panel
  3. In order to route you to the correct support expert, we need to know what type of question you have.
  4. Click Continue.
  5. We’ll provide you a few options. You choose which one is best for you.

This will get you on the right track. Feel me in if you have any additional questions about the Payroll. Have a good one.
