A payroll run that is set up to occur at a regular frequency is scheduled payroll. You can set up payroll schedules for paying employees to make your regular payroll runs error-free and convenient. Payroll schedules are also convenient when you want to pay your employees in batches or groups.
You set up payroll schedules after you have completed the Payroll Setup process, when you are in the Payroll Center.
What is a payroll schedule?
How do I get started using a payroll schedule?
To do this task
After you set up your payroll schedule
using the New Payroll Schedule window, the payroll schedule appears in the Pay Employees section of the Payroll Center.
Assign the payroll schedule to employees.
After you set up your payroll schedule, QuickBooks gives you the option of assigning the payroll schedule to employees with the same pay frequency. You can also assign the payroll schedule to employees at a later time.
To run the payroll schedule, click the schedule to select it and then click Start Scheduled Payroll. (If the payroll you
select is one that you previously started but haven't finished, the payroll schedule appears in italics, and you click Resume Scheduled Payroll.)
