    Customize a check voucher or pay stub

    Article ID: 1000512


    You may want to customize the information that displays and prints on a check voucher or pay stub.


    You have created a paycheck for an employee and now want to customize the check voucher or pay stub.

    Expected Outcome

    You will have a customrized check voucher or pay stub.


    Check voucher only

    You can customize a check voucher to display and print account names.

    To print account names:

    Choose Edit > Preferences.

    Click the Checking icon, and click the Company Preferences tab.

    Select Print account names on voucher, and click OK.

    Note: If the check is not a paycheck or is not used for inventory purchases, the first 16 lines of the account name will be displayed. If the check is a paycheck or is used for inventory purchases, QuickBooks will display the payroll item or inventory item.

    By default, QuickBooks prints the following information:
    • Payee
    • Date
    • Amount (first 16 lines) and total amount
    • Memo (first 16 lines)

    Employee Pay Stub and Check Voucher

    Choose Edit > Preferences.

    Click the Payroll & Employees icon in the icon list, and then click the Company Preferences tab.

    Click the Pay Stub & Voucher Printing button.

    In the Payroll Printing Preferences window, select or click to clear any of the checkboxes for displaying this information.

    Click OK twice.

    I do payroll for a limousine company and when entering paychecks I do a detailed selection of each job the driver is being paid for. How can I get this detail to print on the employees paystub or run a separate report to accompany the paycheck so the employee knows which jobs the paycheck includes?
