Our owner went without a paycheck over our slow time and now he wants me to catch up his pay, deductions etc from those missed pay periods. How do I do this?

The owner of our firm went without a pay check during our slow time as our cash flow was low. Now that we are busy again he wants me to catch up his missed checks, as well as his deductions, insurance etc. He is a salaried employee. How do I do this? Do I create a paycheck for each pay period or can I do one lump sum. Would I pay taxes on this check for this period as it will be issued this week even though the time was accrued in other periods?


You are not catching up missed Checks. The next paycheck would get the Missed Gross pay + current. It's One Paycheck, now.

You stated Owner; they only get paid as an Employee if they are working for a Corporation. Corporations have no Owners; they have shareholders, and shareholder-employees.

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.
