I'm here to guide you through creating a bill to pay your worker and retaining a percentage as his saving in QuickBooks Online (QBO), @acoduman.
First, let's set up a liability account to track your worker's saving. It's because this is a deduction from the bill you'll create for them. Please take note that you'll need to convert the percentage into an amount as his saving. Before that, I'd recommend consulting your accountant to determine the appropriate account and detail types for this. Once confirmed, proceed with the steps below.
See the screenshot below to show you the last four steps. For the detailed instructions, check out this article: Adding Accounts.
Second, let's create a bill and add the liability account you've created above on the second line. Then, enter the amount in negative to increase this account's balance. This way, you'll be able to pay your worker's saving after it accumulates later. Here's how:
The screenshot below shows you the last six steps. For your reference, kindly refer to this article: Entering Bills.
Once done, you can go to the Pay Bills option from the + New menu. Just select the bill you've entered above so you'll be able to pay your worker.
As for the saving, let's create an expense once it accumulates soon. Then, choose the liability account in the Category column. Enter the amount in positive to offset its balance. View the screenshot below for your visual reference.
Also, I recommend running the Account QuickReport of the liability account. Just locate it from the Chart of Accounts page. Then, click Run report from the Action column. From there, you'll be able to keep track of all the transactions associated with this account, such as your worker's saving. I've attached a screenshot below on how the report looks like in QBO.
Please know that I'll be right here to help if you need anything else. Take care always, @acoduman.
