multiple pay rates

how can I process a timesheet with multiple pay rates?  eg, I have a trucking business where for one truck set up my employees are paid $30/hr, which is their usual rate, but when they are in a larger vehicle they are on $32/hr.  how do I show/pay this in the one timesheet?


Hi, andrewtodd86.

You’ll need to create a payroll item to allocate each rate. Also, you’ll need to create service item for each specific time rates for proper tracking. Here’s how:

  1. Click the Gear icon at the top.
  2. Select Products and Service under Lists.
  3. Click New at the upper right of the screen.
  4. Select Service and enter necessary information.
  5. Click Save and close.

You can use these service items when creating timesheets. Though there isn’t a way to include their rates in this page. This should be done when creating the paycheck (where you’ll use the payroll item allocated for each rate).

To help you further on creating the payroll items, I’d recommend reaching out to the Keypay support team.  You can visit this site to get in touch with them:

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.
