Employees and payroll

I got your back @coffee-thebridge,


I have some information about finishing your payroll. If you forgot to tap on the Finish payroll, don't worry. You were able to submit the payroll all you need to complete is printing the paychecks (or paystubs). Let me walk you through how.


  1. Go to the Payroll menu. Then, select Employees.
  2. In the Employees page, click the Paycheck list link under Run payroll.
  3. In the Paycheck list page, mark the box next to the employee's name.
  4. Click the Print button.

With these steps, you're able to finish your payroll. For details, check out this guide: Print paychecks in QuickBooks Online.
