QuickBooks Guide – Entering overtime payroll items on the employee record


Enter overtime payroll items on the employee record


If an employee has more than one overtime rate

Create a separate Overtime Pay payroll item for each type of overtime. For example, if any of your employees earn both time-and-a-half and double-time, create separate payroll items for both so that you can assign the appropriate multiplier (1.50 and 2.00) to each.

On the employee record, enter both overtime payroll items below the regular pay payroll item on which they are based, like so:


If an employee has more than one regular hourly rate

If your employee has two different types of jobs and earns a different hourly rate for each, create separate Regular Pay and Overtime Pay payroll items for each hourly rate. On the employee record, enter the payroll item for the first job’s hourly rate, then enter the payroll item for the first job’s overtime rate, like so:

Next, repeat those steps for the second’s job’s straight time and overtime rates, like so:

The overtime payroll items now follow the correct regular pay payroll items, and QuickBooks will produce the correct rate for them.
