What are the Unpaid Wages in the Committed Costs by Job report please?

I am trying to implement Job Costing, so I opend the sample Contractor company file.

I stopped at the Unpaid Wages in the Committed Costs by Job report.

I cannot dig to know what are those Unpaid Wages and where they will go in the PL account please .

Thank you 




Hello there, Mahmoud Aljawhary,

I'm here to help you determine and locate the unpaid wages in the Committed Cost by Job report.

In the Committed Costs by Job report, the unpaid wages are those from time entries that have not yet been posted to a payroll check. 

Since you haven't created a paycheck for those wages, they will not appear on the Profit & Loss report. You can pull up the Time by Job Summary report, then locate the contractor/employee and then identify its details.

Here are the detailed steps below:

  1. Go to the Reports menu, choose Jobs, Time & Mileage, then select Time by Job Summary.
  2. Locate the name of the contractor/employee, then double-click the amount under it.
  3. The Time by Job Detail report will pull up to display its detailed information.
Please refer to the screenshots below for your visual reference.

I'm just around if there's anything else you need. I may be able to help you with your concerns so please don't hesitate to leave a comment below.

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.
