paying owner for time on job

I own a small home improvement company, myself and 2 employees. One of the employees recently went out for surgery and I put the tool belt back on while he is out. My question(s) ishow do I pay myself for the time on the job and how is it entered so that it reflects injob costing reports?  I have taken a couple of checks on owners equity draws and entered a job on the check register but it doesn't seem to show up in the job details report.

paying owner for time on job

Thanks for posting here in the Community, @dpolson-co. It's sad to know about your employee's surgery. I'm hoping for his fast recovery. 


To answer your question, you'll need to enter the paycheck information through a timesheet. You can manually edit the paycheck information so they'll have the payroll expense allocated to the job. 


To edit the paychecks easily, you can run the Payroll Detail report for that time.
Here's how:

  1. At the top menu, select Employees then Payroll Center.
  2. At the top left, select the Pay Employees tab.
  3. Under Recent Payrolls, find the correct paycheck date then click the amount in the NET PAY column.
  4. Double-click the name of the employee then click the Paycheck Detail button.
  5. In the CUSTOMER: JOB column, select the correct job name.
  6. Click OK.

I've also added some additional articles for future reference:

Let me know if you have any other questions about allocating payroll expenses to the job. I'll be happy to help you out.
