Employees and payroll

Hi WEP1932.


The Payroll Summary report contains the total hours and summary of payroll by paycheck date. You might want to check each paycheck to see if there are items with hours without a rate. Hours entered on the paycheck will also be included in your payroll reports.


  1. On the Payroll Summary report, double click on the amount associated with the hours.1.PNG
  2. Click on the Customize Report button in the Transactions by Payroll Item window.
  3. Type in Pay Period under Columns. Then, mark to select Pay Period Begin Date and Pay Period End Date.3.PNG
  4. Click on OK.
  5. To check if there are duplicate paychecks created, review the Pay Period Begin Date and Pay Period End Date columns.5.PNG
  6. Then, double-click on the amount to see the detailed information of each paycheck. 
  7. Click on the Paycheck Detail button and review each item with hours.

I'm adding an article that you can learn more about customizing payroll and employee reports in QuickBooks.


Once done, it's a great idea to memorize the report. This helps save the same settings of the customized report for reuse.
