Paycheck Deductions

I own a security company that will be requiring guards to purchase their own uniforms, but in an effort to make this expense not so costly upfront, I'd like to figure out how to properly set up a deduction so that we can buy the uniforms for the guards and just take it out of their checks in increments. I've seen other companies do this, but I think most use ADP or some other payroll provider, so I'm not sure how to enter this into QBO Full Service Payroll.

Paycheck Deductions

Hi @urbancowboy19941,

 

If it's for a new deduction using Full Service Payroll, I suggest contacting our Technical Support team to set it up for you. 

 

Here's how:

  1. Log in to your QuickBooks Online (QBO) company.
  2. Click the Help menu.
  3. Select Contact us.

On the other hand, if this is an additional deduction for your employees, then follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Employees tab.
  2. Select an employee from the list.
  3. In the Deductions and Contribution section, tap Edit.
  4. Press Add new deduction or contribution.
  5. In the new window, select the name of the deduction you'd like to add.
  6. As applicable, define the per-pay period deduction and annual maximum for the deduction you're adding. 
  7. Hit Done when you're finished.

In case you have other questions about QBO Full Service Payroll, you can refer to this link for related articles for different topics: QuickBooks Online Payroll Full Service Hub. Sections listed are paychecks and pay stubs, employees, taxes, and forms. 

 

Have other questions in mind? Post them below, and I'll be sure to get back to you.

Paycheck Deductions

When setting the employee deduction up...what if there is no set amount.  My employees might buy a shirt from me one week but maybe not again for 6 weeks later?  I can't deduct a set amount every pay period because it is not the coincident? When I try to set up the deduction it requires me to put in a pay period deduction amount, how do I work around that??

 

Thanks
