What do I do if the occupational codes that I need aren't in QuickBooks Desktop? I need 151134 (Web Developer) and 151141 (Database Administrators) and neither of those is an option.

Re: What do I do if the occupational codes that I need aren't in QuickBooks Desktop? I need 15113...

I ended up quitting and manually entering the codes on the spreadsheet because I kept encountering codes that weren't available. 

 

The process of entering codes is pretty cumbersome. I have over 60 employees and requiring me to click through 4 to 6 screens for each employee to get to the occupational code screen is not worth the trouble. I realize this is a recent change so until you come up with something easier I will be filling in the codes manually before creating the upload file.

 

Thank you for your response.

Hi SIGMA03,

 

Adding code isn't an option in QuickBooks Desktop. You'll want to contact our Payroll Support so we can add it on our next payroll update. I'd also suggest consulting with an accountant to know how to correctly record this.

 

Here's how to reach us:

  1. In QuickBooks, press F1.
  2. Click the Contact us link at the bottom.
  3. Click the Basic, Standard & Enhanced button.
  4. Click Payroll, click Chat with us.

Feel free to read this article for more information: Set up occupational codes for employees.

 

You might want to check this handy articles for future reference: Payroll and workers.

 

Please leave a comment below anytime if you have other questions. I'd be sure to reply soon.
