Setting Up Employees

For each employee in your organization, certain pieces of information must be included in the payroll system. To process paychecks and prepare tax documents for your employees, you need to record the correct name, address, and Social Security number of each employee. In addition, QuickBooks gives you an opportunity to keep track of personal employee information such as telephone and fax numbers, an email address, and the date of hire all in one convenient location.

Enter Employee Personal Information

Click the Employee Center button on the QuickBooks toolbar or select Employee Center from the Employees menu.

Press Ctrl+N to open the New Employee window.

Make sure the Personal tab is selected.

Enter the employee's title.

Enter the employee's name.

Enter the way in which the employee's name should appear on paychecks (QuickBooks enters this information as you type the name in step 5, but you can change this if necessary).

Enter the employee's Social Security number.
