Change default employee payroll information

You must be in single-user mode to do this.

When you change your employee defaults, you change the information that QuickBooks prefills the next time you add an employee.

Note: Changes in the default setup affect new employees only. Setup information for existing employees is not affected by changes to the default setup.

To do this task

  1. Click Employee Center.

  2. Click Manage Employee Information at the top of the list and click Change New Employee Default Settings.

  3. Make the changes you want.

    • To change a tax in the default setup, click Taxes, click the tab for the tax you want, enter the change, and then click OK.

    • To add another payroll item , click the first blank line in the Item Name field, and choose a name from the drop-down list or type a new name.

    • To change the default amount, default percentage, or annual limit for a payroll item, edit the Amount or Limit field.

    • To remove a payroll item, select the item name and press the Delete key.

    • To replace a payroll item, click the item name and choose a different name from the drop-down list.

  4. Click OK to record your changes.
