a simple excel spreadsheet can be used to keep time records.

I've attached the one I use for my church. -- it uses a table look-up function to calculate taxes -- this one is set-up for North Carolina

I've also attached a simple spreadsheet to calculate hours worked based on putting in the start and finish times.

you can also find all kinds of forms all over the internet -- payroll, timesheet, etc.


what do you use to do your shop's books?

If you are using QuickBooks, they have a payroll add-ons of various types.

If you end up purchasing QuickBooks POS system, there's also a sign-in/sign-out function that would allow you to pull up weekly totals.

On the other hand, if you're dealing with one person and you're working there, too, you can always can on the honor system and pay them for the time they're there.

Thanks, Doug! for the spreadsheets.

I created one for the shop but not nearly great as yours.

I shall try to incorporate the spreadsheets into our business.

Thanks, again, Doug! And everyone who responded.
