Hi there, customerservice9.


Welcome to the Online Community. I can provide some information about tracking per diem in QBO.


When using a timesheet, you can only track the service worked on a (customer/job). To record the per diem, let’s create a payroll item and then add the amount to the paycheck.

 

  1. Tap the Workers menu to choose the Employees option.
  2. On the Employees page, select the worker you're working on to open its profile.
  3. Click the Pencil icon for Pay under Employee details.
  4. Click the Add additional pay types link under the How much do you pay this employee section.
  5. Then, mark the Reimbursement and then type in the amount in the Recurring amount field (optional).

  6. Press Done.

The Reimbursement field will show in the Enter Employee Pay Details page. From there, type in the correct amount.

For more information, check out the Reimburse an employee article. It provides detailed information about recording non-taxable payments as well as steps to record it in QBO.
