Can I use the workers compensation reports for subcontractors?

Great to have you here, @dirk1.


Let me share some details on how you can generate reports for subcontractors in QuickBooks Online.


Workers Compensation Report is a payroll type of report that shows wages paid for each Workers’ Comp class. You can use this to prepare forms for state agencies or insurance companies. While, subcontractors are categorized as Vendors in QuickBooks Online.


You can access and filter the following reports to show the data that suit your needs:

  • Expenses by Vendor Summary This shows your total expenses for each vendor.
  • Vendor Balance Summary         Tells you the total amount you owe for each vendor.
  • 1099 Transaction Detail Report This displays all the transactions and total for each sub-contractor and their account number, tax ID, with splits.

Here’s how to view these reports:

  1. Click the Reports tab.
  2. Go to Expenses and Vendors section.
  3. Choose any of the reports mentioned above.

That should do it! Don’t hesitate to click the Reply button if you have other questions about generating vendor reports. I’m here to help.
