Payroll not recognizing start date of new employee

We just added a new employee for a 10/30 payroll and the new employee started on 10/15.  Pay period is 10/1-10/15.  When I go to run payroll, it is paying the new employee for the full pay period vs the 1 day of the period (pro-rated).  I have checked the hire date and even moved it to 10/16 and it still shows them getting full pay for the period.  We owe the employee pay for the 1 day so we can't just skip it :)

Payroll not recognizing start date of new employee

Hi there ubuibme,

I’m happy to help you create a paycheck for your new employee in Intuit Online Payroll.

It looks your new hire is a salaried employee. If so, we have an option to enter the hourly pay rate for a salaried employee.

Here’s how:

  1. Click the Payday tab at the top.
  2. Select the correct Pay Schedule.
  3. Choose the appropriate Pay Period and check the employee’s name.
  4. Under Check Details, click the Edit icon.
  5. Enter the amount in the Regular box.
  6. Click Create.
  7. Enter the needed information and click Create Paychecks (see screenshot below).

Here’s a relevant article on how to calculate the effective hourly pay rate for a salaried employee: Determine hourly rate for salaried employees.


That should work for you. Don't hesitate to let me know if you have follow-up questions about creating a paycheck. I'll be here to assist you. Have a great weekend.
