QB Issue Resolution:

Let me share some insights about changing the memo and the pay period of a bonus paycheck.


You can update the memo of the paycheck by going to the employee’s transaction. Please be reminded that we are unable to remove the pay period of a bonus check.


Here’s how to create a bonus check:

  1. Click Employees at the top, then choose Pay Employees.
  2. Select Unscheduled Payroll from the list.
  3. Select the employee you want to create a bonus check, then select the Open Paycheck Detail button.
  4. Under the Earnings section, select in the Bonus Item Name column to get a drop-down menu
  5. Reminder: All earnings items and information besides the bonus item should be removed from the paycheck detail as needed.
  6. In the Rate column, enter the gross amount of the bonus.
  7. Adjust federal and/or state withholding taxes as needed.
  8. Select Save and Close or Save and Next to continue creating additional bonus paychecks.

Once done, go to the Employee Center and update the memo field.


Here’s how:

  1. Select Employees at the top, then choose Employee Center.
  2. Click the employee’s name, then double-click the bonus paycheck.
  3. Update the Memo field (see screenshot).
  4. Click Save & Close.
