QuestionWhy are my bonus payroll items carried over as an addition when upgrading to QuickBooks QBi 2008/09?
If you have set up a Bonus payroll item in QuickBooks 2007/08, after upgrading it retains the Additional payroll item type. The item will function in the same way as it did in the 2007/08 software and will not take on the new functionality offered by the specific Bonus payroll item introduced in QuickBooks 2008/09.
Note: You will not be able to edit your existing payroll item type from Addition to Bonus.
To set up a Bonus item:
1. Go to the Lists menu and then click Payroll Item List
2. Click the Payroll Item button and then click New
3. Select the type of item you want to set up. Click Next
4. Follow the onscreen instructions. (To go back to a previous window, click Back)
5. Click Finish
