How to pay staff at fixed take home pay using QB Payroll online?

Recently signed up QB payroll online. There is an issue that all the employees are at fixed take home pay bases. I can't find anywhere to input this, it seems that the system is not supporting it. Could anyone help and advise? Thanks.


I’m here to help, jpco.account.

Our system is designed to capture or calculate the employee's take home pay based on the details you’ve entered in your Employee’s profile. To make sure that you’ve met the employee’s target take home pay, I suggest you check the Pay details of the employee and the Tax information as well.

Here’s how:

  1. Click on the Employees tab at the left navigation panel.
  2. Select the Employees sub-tab at the top.
  3. Click on the employee’s name.
  4. Click on the Pay details section to review the information.
  5. Next, click on the Tax Information section to review employee’s tax data.

 You can edit the information on each section if necessary.

That’ll do it. If you have any other questions, please let me know. I’ll be glad to help in any way I can.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
