Labor Distribution & Payroll Journal Entries

This event qualifies for 1.0 CPEs

Labor distribution converts hours into dollars and distributes those dollars throughout the GL and across jobs. Payroll journal entries record the employer's portion of employment taxes and offset salaries payable created by the labor distribution process. Both are necessary for the accurate calculation of indirect rates for government contracts. Errors often include failure to segregate labor accounts and properly account for employee deductions. Reimbursement of employee expenses through payroll adds another layer of complexity to the process as expenses often get erroneously recorded as labor. In this webinar we'll show you how to perform labor distribution using QuickBooks Desktop Manual Payroll, how to identify common errors, and we'll share our free payroll journal entry template.


Learning Objectives

  • Describe the labor distribution process.
