My employee wants two paystubs. 
we pay him his regular pay then we give him his truck allowance. He wants the two separate. 
when I went to create another cheque in payroll for him his pay stub still had all his payroll info on it. He wants a paystub for payroll and one for just his truck allowance with nothing else on it. Can that be done in quickbooks online accountant?

I've got you covered, LeannaRiviere.


Creating two paychecks for the same person in QuickBooks Online Accountant is possible. I'll show you how.


  1. Go to the Payroll menu and then select Employees.
  2. Click Run payroll and then select the pay schedule for the payroll you want to create.
  3. Select Continue and enter the correct Pay period and Pay date.
  4. Select the employee and add the correct details for the regular pay.
  5. Choose Preview payroll and then select Submit payroll.
  6. Click Finish payroll.


To add a paycheck for the truck allowance, click Run payroll again. Once done, select Create another check for (employee name), then choose Create another check. After that, follow the outlined steps above to complete the process.



You can also check out this article for the detailed steps. This is for the online and desktop version but works with QuickBooks Online Accountant: Create and Run your Payroll.


Additionally, I've added an article that'll guide you on what to do when you have a client in QuickBooks Online Accountant and need to add payroll to their company file: Manage Payroll.

I did do this!!

But both paystubs are the same. All the information is put all together on one pay stub,it doesn't give two different paystubs even if I do it as a new cheque.



Thanks for coming back to us, Leanna.


I want to make sure you're able to process the other payroll successfully for this employee. For this, you can use the steps shared by CharleneMae_F, but you only need to fill out the amount for truck allowance. Make sure to remove the other pay types and deductions so they're not included in the paystub.


Here's how:


  1. Go to the  Payroll menu, then select Employees.
  2. Click the Run Payroll option.
  3. Tap the Create another cheque for [Employee Name] link.
  4. Make sure to remove the hours and only fill in the allowance field.
  5. Press Preview payroll.
  6. Once all the information is correct, click on Submit payroll.
  7. Confirm the amounts and payment methods and select Finish Payroll.
  8. Print the paystub after.


If you're still unable to get the right data on the paystub after making sure the payroll details are correct, please contact our payroll support. They can check your payroll processing and share additional insights for you.
