Printing pay slips

For one company when I print the pay slips a list of potential pay items appear for everyone even if they do not receive any of that item. Last week it meant everyone appeared to received holiday pay even though on the actual payroll only one employee did.


Hi David.little,

It's possible that the payroll items are already set up under the employee's information, that's why they are showing on the payslip.

You'll want to edit the payroll items.

Here's how:

  1. Click Employees menu on the upper part.
  2. Select Employees Center.
  3. Click the pencil icon on the upper part to see the list of payroll items of the employee.
  4. To delete, double-click on the item. (You can also add an item by clicking the drop-down arrow)
  5. Click OK.

Also, another way to edit the items is through the Preview Paycheck window.

Here's how:

  1. Click Employees menu on the upper part.
  2. Select Pay Employees.
  3. Choose Scheduled/Unscheduled Payroll.
  4. Place a check mark beside employee's name.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Add/Delete a payroll item under the Earnings and Other Payroll Items section.
  7. Click Save & Close.

If you need anything else, please let me know by leaving a comment below. I'll make sure to get back to you.

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.
