I am a general contractor and use Quickbooks Pro 2019 desktop version. I have one employee who receives a salary, but I need to bill different clients a portion of that salary. I seem to be able to enter a new Salary line item when I am creating the paycheck, but it automatically divides the amount of his pay in half. I need to be able to assign different amounts of the salary to different jobs so that I may bill accordingly. Any clues? Thanks in advance!
Thanks for reaching out to the QuickBooks Community, @wbsherlock.
Let me help share some insights on how you can assign different amounts of the salary to different jobs.
You can set up a billable timesheet so you can track payroll expenses by a job in your employee's paycheck. Right after, create an invoice for your customer and choose the billable time you set up for your employee.
Let's open first your employee's paycheck detail to add a Customer:Job (attached screenshot).
Now, let's set up a timesheet by following the steps below:
At the top menu bar, click Employees.
Go to Enter Time.
Choose Use Weekly Timesheet.
Click the Name drop-down and select your employee's name.
On the Customer:Job rows, select the drop-down arrow and choose the job name.
Make sure the Billable box is mark as check.
Click Save & Close.
Once done, you can now create an invoice for your customer with the billable time. Let me walk you through the steps:
Click Customers, then select Invoice.
Select a name on the Customer:Job drop-down arrow.
On the Billable Time/Costs window, choose Select the outstanding billable time and costs to add to this invoice? option.
Look for your employee's name with a billable time and mark as check.
Enter the Amount.
Select Save & Close.
