The purpose of this article is just to give you a quick overview to help you configure your LMN Time Payroll Codes.  

Payroll Codes will link to your Payroll Items in QuickBooks.  

To setup your Payroll Codes, follow the steps below.

  • Click on Settings
  • Click on Payroll Codes on the left-hand menu.
  • Click on +Payroll Codes located on the bottom-right corner.

  • Give the Payroll Code a name. (TIP: it's recommended you name your Payroll Codes as close as you can to your Payroll Item's in QB to avoid any confusion when running the QB Sync Tool and matching these).
  • The Payroll ID is an extra field that could be used in the event you wish to add any extra pertinent information or if your bookkeeper uses IDs in QB to label each Payroll Item. This field is simply for viewing purposes and does not impact any aspect of LMN/QB; it can be left blank.
  • Press OK.

You can also setup your Payroll Codes per Job Type and even down to the Job level. To understand how this works, please click on the following  article:
