I have 2 part time employees. I cannot afford $80 per month for your services. Can you help me with a different plan?


This is not the case for QB for US: "So 'manual payroll' in QB basically means that you get access to the employee list, but you have to calculate and create the paycheques completely manually - using the 'write cheque' function."

We get the Paychecks, the functions for Pay Employees, and the function for Pay Liabilities as Create Custom Liability Payments. We get the function to Pay From Time Data, too, for job and class tracking.

What we don't get is the Payroll "Center" with Schedules. That entire little tab doesn't display. The Tax Items won't calculate ("manual payroll calculations") but we can set up our own Calculating Items, or enter the values.

Take a look at my attached image, bottom right. You see the word "(adjusted)" = something here was Manually entered or overridden. That would be the same concept as Manual Payroll in a US file.

Thanks for the info.

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.
