We have one employee. We pay him a percentage per job. Each job is a different rate. I have entered the different jobs into the payroll item list. When I go to enter jobs/activity into the timesheet, there are no items on the drop down list. When i go to add a new item, it ask if i want to pay employee hourly or salary. We do neither. How do i enter earnings for this employee? I want to track the date, job, and rate for each time he works. I am lost.
You must first create jobs in QuickBooks Desktop. Here’s how:
- Go to Customers.
- Select Customer Center from the list.
- Click New Customer & Job at the top.
- Select Add Job.
- Enter Job name and other information.
- Click OK.
Once done, you can now enter timesheet for the employee, here’s an article how: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1771170-create-and-print-timesheets
You can also have the system enter the timesheet automatically on the employee’s paycheck. Here’s how:
- Click Employees at the top.
- Select Employee Center.
- Double-click the employee’s name.
- Go to Payroll Info.
- Put a check mark for Use time data to create paychecks.
- Click OK.
