How do I add commissions?

To add commissions, start by selecting Payroll and Employee Payroll Setup listed under the Payroll section in the Drop down menu. Select edit beside the employee in which you wish to pay commissions. Hit continue one time and then click the Add New Addition button and select Commission from the first drop down menu. Indicate the GL account that should be used to record commission pay. Assign the W2 box in which commission pay should be reflected for wage reporting and check the taxes that will apply to commission pay. You may assign a default amount for all company commissions, or leave the amount at $0 to set the commission pay at the individual employee level. Check to Update Employees if you want commission pay listed as an addition on all employees already entered. After entering all applicable information, click on the Save button.
