ezPaycheck: How to Generate a Bonus Check for Employee

ezPaycheck payroll software makes small business payroll an easy job. It can handle paychecks by hourly rate, salary, shift rate, commissions, tips, pay-by-piece, pay-by-load and more. It also prints paychecks on blank stock and pre-printed checks.

Here are the steps to add a bonus:

Set up Bonus Payment Type

ezPaycheck payroll software comes with BONUS wage type by default. You can open the Wage Setup screen to make sure this field is checked. You can also rename it if needed (ie: "Annual Bonus" or "Monthly Bonus".)

Option 1: Add bonus to regular paycheck

Option 2: Generate a bonus only paycheck

If you need to generate a bonus only paycheck, please choose the "Pay Start" date, "Pay End" date carefully to avoid pay peroid overlapped error.

For example: You last pay period is 8/12/2013 to 8/23/2013. You next pay period is 8/25/2013 to 9/6/2013. You can generate a bonus only paycheck for 8/24/2013 to 8/24/2013

When you generate the paycheck, you can change the current pay rate to zero temporarily.
