An employee has accrued several hundred hours of vacation pay. We'd like to payout some of this now on top of his regular paycheck. How can we do that on QB payroll?

Rather than wait until the final paycheck when the employee leaves the company, we'd like to pay some of his accrued vacation pay now. I can't find how to do that on QB payroll online.

I’m here to help you with the process, @fredburks.


QuickBooks Online Payroll (QBOP) offers a way to pay employees with their accrued hours on top of their regular paycheck.


You can create unscheduled checks. Just make sure the dates fall after your last check date and before your next payday. This is to keep your payroll taxes error-free.


Here’s how:

 

  1. Go to the Payroll menu, then select Employees.
  2. Click Run payroll.
  3. Find the employee you want to pay, and then select Create another check.
  4. Enter the employee vacation hours.
  5. Confirm the pay period and check date.
  6. Press Preview Payroll and then select Submit payroll.
  7. If creating a paper check, you can handwrite or print it.
  8. Select Finish payroll.


You can use this information to learn more about creating unscheduled checks in QBOP.


I’ve also added a reference that helps and keeps your business organized and payroll compliant: 2021 Payroll Guide.


If you need additional assistance in running payroll, please let me know. I’ll be more than happy to help. Take care and have a great day!
