Payroll reports

I would like a report that shows total "wages" per employee. The "All Gross Pay" filter includes additions such as reimbursements and I don't want those non-taxable wages included in the figure.

Payroll reports

Hello there, @


Currently, getting a report with only having total wages per employee is unavailable. Although, you can remove the other fields to get the total wages only by exporting a Payroll Summary Report. Then, delete the fields such as Adjusted Gross Pay and Employer Taxes and Contributions manually in the Excel spreadsheet.


Here's how it looks like:



I've added an article that can guide you to track the specific aspect of your payroll in QuickBooks Dekstop: Customize payroll and employee reports.


Feel free to let me know in the comment section below if you need further assistance or questions. I'd be happy to answer them for you. Have a wonderful day.

Thanks for the reply, but your snapshot of how to get gross pay isn't what I was after.  I don't want "gross pay" either because it includes additions such as reimbursements and I don't want those non-taxable wages included in the figure. I have to manually subtract the reimbursements each time I want total "wages".

Thanks for your prompt reply. I'll take care of this query for you.


As my colleague @MarsStephanieL stated in her post, the specific report you're looking for is unavailable in QuickBooks Desktop. The closest we can provide as a workaround is what she provided above. 


If you're looking to create other custom reports for payroll, take a look at this article: Customize payroll and employee reports. For easier access to these custom reports, you can memorize these reports as well. 


Feel free to post below if you need further assistance. I'll be sure to get back to you.
