Set up Minimum Amount for Payroll

Posted on 2012-08-23

Hey Everyone -

At this point I'd like to setup a scenario for my employees that allow them to have a somewhat dependable income. Every few weeks, our clients become somewhat inactive, and an employee who brought in 900 the previous pay period can be receiving $200 the next. I'd like to have it in QuickBooks that I can give them a minimum amount for a paycheck no matter what. If they surpass that amount, they'd receive the larger number.

Is there  a way to do that in QuickBooks or would this become a "manual" endeavor every few weeks?

    Accepted Solution

    I have done something like that for a client.  The only practical way I know is to set a base wage that is paid in each pay (all automatic if no changes). Then add commissions and/or variable pay as needed. Because of the variability, this step is always manual, but the combination approach is fairly easy to manage.
