Project reports

When I run a profitability report on a project, the actual cost of a salaried employee is not included.  The hourly paid staff's time is listed.  What do I need to do to add the salaried employee?

Thanks for posting in the Community, @CLS7.

 

When running the Project profitability report in QuickBooks Online (QBO), the option to include the payroll expenses is unavailable. As a workaround, you can run the Project profitability and Time cost by employee or vendor report and export them to excel. Once the reports are exported, merge them to add the payroll expenses in the Project Profitability report.

 

To run the reports, here's how:

 

Project profitability:

  1. In the left menu, click Projects.
  2. Select the project's name.
  3. Go to the Project Reports tab.
  4. Click View beside Project profitability.
  5. Select the export icon and choose Export to Excel.

 

Time cost by employee or vendor:

  1. In the left menu, click Projects.
  2. Select the project's name.
  3. Go to the Project Reports tab.
  4. Click View beside Time cost by employee or vendor.
  5. Select the export icon and choose Export to Excel.

To know more about how the Project feature, see this article: Set up and create projects in QuickBooks Online.

Hello again, CLS7.

 

Right now, when tracking your project labour costs, you can only track hourly time costs, in which you can add project timesheets using your hourly cost rates. If you mean that you've added project timesheets to your salaried employees, to isolate the issue, ensure that you've selected the correct Customer/Project when creating the Time Activity for the salaried employee. Then, run the Project profitability report to see how it works. 

 

To learn more about how the Project feature works, you can check out the below articles:
