Payroll Commission paid by Customer

Hi there, srzbick.


Thanks for reaching out to us. I'm here to help and guide you on how to pull up a report that will show how much you paid for employees by customer/job. 


You can run the Summarize Payroll Data in Excel report. This way, it will show how much you paid for your employees by Customer/Job.


Here's how: 

  1. At the top menu bar, click Reports.
  2. Go to Employees & Payroll.
  3. Select Summarize Payroll Data in Excel.
  4. Enter the transactions date range.
  5. Click Get QuickBooks Data.
  6. Select the Rates and Hours by Job.
  7. Click Customer:Job option.
  8. On the Choose field to add to report, make sure to toggle the check mark of Customer:Job option.
  9. Once done, it will appear the Rate and Hours worked for window that will show how much you paid employees by customer/job.

You may also contact our QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Support if you need further assistance with the steps. They have additional tools to pull up your account in a secure environment and do a remote session. 


Here's how you can contact our support:

It should show in Job Cost reporting, in Item reporting, and in Payroll reporting. Even P&L by Job, would show this, as long as you Tracked Payroll by Job, on the commission item. Please see my attachment.
