We are a trucking company that pays some drivers by the hour and some by the mile. Is there a way to set up a payroll item that allows this pay type by the mile?
I know a way on how you can track mileage in QuickBooks Online (QBO), thronelandscape.
Instead of setting up a payroll item to track mile per driver, we can set up a vendor profile for your employee. Then, create an expense account to track the mileage and reimburse them if your employee paid it using their funds.
Here's how you can set up a vendor profile for your employees:
Click Expenses on the left side menu.
Hit New vendor.
Enter your employee's info with a unique display name.
