QB Issue Resolution:

employees are paid cash, regardless you also need to do payroll for IRS and SS withholding, manually or using a payroll application

create a product item, when you use it enter in the description block the item description being sold and amount

in company settings turn on the discount block

in the discount block enter the discount you do not get to keep

ie

you collect 30% on each sale as your commission, enter 70% in the discount block

the full sales amount will post to income, the discount will post to discount given income account (default account set up by QBO when you enable discounts), and on the P&L the net will show as your commission amount

You pay for expenses, and that shows on the P&L too
