Q: We will be issuing bonus checks to our employees. What is the best way to create a bonus check?
A: If you do not already have a payroll code set up for bonus, you must add a new payroll code using Maintain Payroll Codes. To record a bonus check, go to >Transactions >Payroll >Record Pay Data. Select the employee you wish to record the bonus check for and click >Start. Next, click >Options and select Special Check. After the Earnings Code window appears, click >New and select the appropriate Bonus Code. Enter the amount of the bonus click >OK. Click >Save and then Validate.
