Glad to have you again in the Community, Veronica H,
I'd be happy to show you on how to run a report for commissions paid by sales representative in QuickBooks Desktop.
For guidance about this process, you can read article: Customize customer, job, and sales reports.
For future reference, you may find these articles helpful:
Keep me posted on how things go when running report, Veronica H. I'm always here to further assist.
Unfortunately, that report does not help.
That does not give me what commissions I have actually paid out on. It just gives me a list of all the jobs under that rep's name.
Thanks for getting back to us, @Veronica H.
In addition to my colleague's suggestion, you can also run a Sales by Rep Detail report. Then, change the filter to commissions in the Customize Report page. Here's how:
1. Go to the Reports menu at the top.
2. Click Sales.
3. Select Sales by Rep Detail.
4. Set the Date range.
5. Click the Customize Report tab, then go to the Filters tab.
6. Choose Account under the Filter section.
7. Select Commissions in the Account drop-down.
Commissions should be available on the list if you recorded or added this transaction as such in the Account under the ITEM CODE.
8. Once done, click OK to display all the commission items in the report.
Once done, all commission items will display in the report.
You can also read through our help article: Customize Customer, Job, and Sales Reports. It helps you narrow down your filters so you can easily manage and keep track of your sales and accounts receivable in the program.
Let me know if you have more questions. We're always here for you. All the best!
I don't have COMMISSIONS listed as a category in the account drop-down. I am taking over for our previous finance manager and I am not proficient in using QB.
Thanks for getting back to us, Veronica H.
We have a different report that can help track the amounts paid to your sales rep. You can run and customize the Transaction List by Date. I'll show you how:
