QuickBooks automatically assigns classes to wages and company-paid
You can determine which additional payroll items and company contribution
payroll items to track by class. (See step 4 below)
QuickBooks applies class tracking to new transactions only. It does not
apply it to previously affected transactions.
To do this task
Turn on class tracking in the accounting
Turn on the payroll
preference for tracking payroll expenses for job costing and class.
Choose between the payroll
preferences to either always assign a single class to an entire paycheck or
to assign different classes to different earnings items on individual
Which preference should I choose?
Decide which addition payroll
items or company
contribution payroll items you want to track by class. Then open each of
those payroll items, and select the checkbox for Track Expenses by Job.
Note: The Track Expenses by Job checkbox only appears when you have
class tracking turned on.
