My first payroll of February 2019 illustrates a change in the way Sick/Personal time is illustrated on paystubs. For example, the old paystub showed this way:
Earned YTD Used
Sick / Personal 1.30 11.75
Now it shows this way:
Sick / Personal Accrued Used Available
Current 1.54 0.00 39.09
YTD 177.52 11.75
I am not sure what the "YTD Accrued" is illustrating....
Hi there, @CDABookeeper.
Thank you for posting in the Community. I'm here to help share some information about your employee's sick time accruals on the new paystub.
The new paystub will now show sick time accruals balances and shortfalls for greater visibility unlike the old paystub that only includes the YTD paid amount.
You can check out this article for more details: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/community/Help-Articles/Sick-Pay-Maximums/m-p/186421.
The YTD accrued illustrates the total year to date accruals starting from January up until the current date. This will depend on how you've set up your sick time in QuickBooks, if it's showing the incorrect data, you may refer to this article: Sick and vacation time incorrect or not accruing on paychecks.
I'm confident that this resource will help to get you on the right track.
Keep me posted if you have additional questions about the differences between the old and new paystub in QuickBooks. I'll be here to help provide you with the information you need. Have a good one.
I just want to make the new YTD lines GO AWAY. It makes NO sense and those data fields on the pay stub were fine before you made changes we did not ask for.
So... how to turn this off, please?
Hello there, @GdeM.
Let's set QuickBooks not to accrue your employee's sick hours so it will not show the new YTD on the paystub.
Once completed, let's open your employee's information one by one and remove your employee's sick hours information.
That should do it! Once you create a paycheck for your employee's, you'll no longer see their accrued sick hours on the paystub.
If you meant something else or have other questions about managing your employee's information, I'm a few clicks away. Cheering you to continued success.
No, that doesn't solve my problem. What I want is for this "improvement" to go away. The way it was computed and displayed on pay stubs before February is what I want. What it shows NOW is an indecipherable number that relates to nothing.
Your solution seems to be to eliminate accounting for Vacation and Sick time completely.
Just give me what I had in January, please.
I appreciate you getting back to us in the Community. I'm here to help make sure this is taken care of.
This isn't the impression that I'd like for you to be left with. The updates and changes that we implement are largely the results of the suggestions provided by users, just like yourself. Rest assured that I'm making it my top priority that your feedback about removing the YTD on the pay stubs reaches our Product Development Team.
In the meantime, I'm including this article for additional information: Sick Pay Maximums.
Thanks for being a part of our QuickBooks family. Please post again or leave a comment should you need anything else. I'm always here to help. Take care always.
