Setup hourly paychecks for part-time employees


F

Fred Marshall

I need to set up payroll for employees who normally work 60 hours a month
and are paid monthly.
Somehow QuickBooks doesn't seem to want to let this happen.

The "rate" is "hourly or annual" and an hourly rate seems to be generated on
a 40-hour week or some such thing.

How can I have better control over this?

Thanks,

Fred

You must have misunderstood. "Hourly" means you set up the rate
(which can be changed or overridden at any time) and enter the hours
each pay period with no restrictions on the number of hours. Try
again, use the Help, read carefully and pay attention to what you're
doing.

Hourly rates are not generated, they are SET, *by you*. There is no 40 hour
week basis - it is whatever you make it. To see what you are using
currently, look at your employee list under "Payroll and Compensation Info"
and see what payroll items you have available under "Earnings" and what Pay
Period you are using. You can edit the information for current employees
using the employee list. You can control what default information is used
for new employees using "Payroll Setup".

In order to guide you in payroll setup, you would need to provide the
version of QB you are using and the payroll options you selected.

One thing to explore -- I noted you are paying monthly. If you are in the
USA there are some states where paychecks *MUST* be issued more frequently,
by law. See the link at http://www.dol.gov/esa/programs/whd/state/payday.htm
I'm not sure, however, if QuickBooks prevents you from setting up for
monthly paychecks in those states (it is still in my drop down list, and I
live in New Jersey). I use the "Do It Yourself" payroll option tho, and so
am on my own as far as regulations. If you are using one of the other QB
payroll options it may be impossible to set up an irregular pay period.

Thanks, that's helpful.
It's Washington, marked "monthly" on the web page.

Well, I would have thought everything you said is the case. I just didn't
very easily get to it in QB 2005 Pro for some reason. I'll keep working at
it. Thanks for the reassurance....
