When you enter a new employee in Quickbooks (2006 Pro with State Payroll Service) one of the questions you are asked is employee start date. I had thought Quickbooks would not let you pay an employee before the employee start date. Two new employees started July 9. Payroll is semi monthly, 15th and last day of the month. Quickbooks calculated pay for the entire payperiod July 1 to July 15 even though the employee start date was July 9. I deleted the checks and redid payroll for these two new employees. It is not redoing the checks I am questioning, it is what purpose does employee start date serve other than a historical date kept in Quickbooks?
