1099 Integrated Billing with Quickbooks

1099 Integrated Billing with Quickbooks

Even before the rise of the pandemic, contractors were a growing part of the U.S. labor force. In 2018 contractors made up 20% of the labor market, with a prediction that contract workers could make up half of the American workforce within a decade. 

What Is A Contractor?

Contractors are professionals who provide skills or services to companies for a set period. They may be employed for a set number of hours, a specific time frame, or the duration of a project. Unlike full-time employees, companies have no payroll tax obligations, with no responsibility for the employer to offer benefits or even provide supplies to independent contractors. They can be self-employed and work independently or run their own limited company.

Why Are Companies Hesitant to Hire Contractors?

Employees and contractors are paid differently. 

Contractors or 1099s (known to the IRS) are treated as accounts payable in QuickBooks. In this system, a Bill has to be created and paid for each 1099 in the company file for each billing period. This can create tremendous work and be an extremely burdensome process if a company employs many contractors or vendors. But thanks to a new feature offered by Hour Timesheet, this type of heavy data entry is a thing of the past.

What Features Does Hour Timesheet Offer?

The Hour Timesheet software integrates with QuickBooks, and enables the contractor to input time against customers and jobs on their timesheet. When the data is exported to QuickBooks, the Bill for the contractor’s expense is already complete. It’s that simple and straightforward. Gone are the days of creating a Bill and paying it manually with each contractor and vendor.

Also, QuickBooks recommends that you set up your contractors as vendors. This way, QuickBooks can track all their related payments. Therefore, when you, their employer, need to complete their 1099, you’ve already got their information together in one place.

How Can This Help Businesses?

The answer is simple: it can save time! A company’s accountant does not have to enter each Bill for their vendor expenses manually. And with the current trend being corporations moving away from employees and moving towards 1099s for their workforce, Hour Timesheet’s software becomes even more valuable.  It will prove to be a tremendous asset for businesses’ accounting workflow process as they move into this post-COVID contractor work environment. 

Is Hour Timesheet’s 1099 Integrated Billing Feature DCAA Compliant?

Nothing has changed concerning time tracking. Every employee, including contractors, must track their hours to remain DCAA compliant. Hour Timesheet’s software makes it easier for companies to choose vendors for their project needs because they’ll be able to track their hours and then bill them efficiently.

New Location Tracking Feature in Mobile App

New Location Tracking Feature in Mobile App

Whether you’re a contractor, manager or member of a team of employees geographically spread out, you can benefit tremendously from using Hour Timesheet’s location tracking feature. There are several advantages of this feature but it’s important to first learn how it works.

How does Hour Timesheet’s Location Tracking Feature Work?

Hour Timesheet’s location tracking feature is only available when using our mobile app. When a user log’s in, the feature will indicate from where they logged in and at what time. The same applies for when they logged out, all users can see exactly where the person was when this action took place.

Who Will Benefit Most From The GPS Time Tracking Feature?

GPS tracking is perfect for contractors working directly from home or field workers who need to work outdoors or at site. For example, construction workers might use this feature when clocking in or out at a job site. Hour Timesheet’s GPS is perfect for night-nurses who are working at a patient’s home. There are so many different kinds of employees that do not work in traditional offices who could benefit tremendously from this feature. 

What Are The Advantages of GPS Time Tracking?

1. Transparency

If a company uses Hour Timesheet’s time tracking software with GPS, everybody has a clear understanding of who is doing what. The GPS tracking feature will prove that an employee was on the clock and on location, exactly where they said they were. The proof is in the real-time reports.

2. Accuracy

With transparency comes accuracy. When an employee knows that they are being monitored they’re more likely to make less mistakes and follow the rules.

3. Data to Support Client Billing

The greater quantity of validating data you have to provide your client, the better your chances are of getting paid on time. Often accounting departments will delay the payments because they’re trying to locate more information regarding your bill. With geolocation data, you’ve lent a much greater amount of proof to the accuracy of your billing. And with our QuickBooks integration, billing will be a breeze.

DCAA Compliance Checklist for Time Tracking

DCAA Compliance Checklist

Government contract work can be lucrative and fascinating work. Navigating government contract process can be very tricky. It’s important to stay up to date on Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) compliance regulations. It’s also critical to ensure you meet DCAA timekeeping requirements if you want to work with any federal government organization. Hour Timesheet does our best to explain DCAA compliance and we offer a product that is always up to date with regulations. The DCAA will run a pre-award audit in order to award any government contracts. You should prepare for this audit and create a list of compliance regulations for the DCAA.

What is DCAA compliance?

The DCAA was established in the 1960s to normalize the government’s contract auditing process, and to ensure the American taxpayer was getting good value for its money.

Initially, the DCAA was originally overseeing military and intelligence contracts for the U.S. Department of Defense. Later, it oversaw many other kinds of labor and service contracts that the federal government signs with commercial suppliers.

If and when you win a government contract, the DCAA timesheet compliance rules will apply to everyone in your company. Regardless of the size of your organization, this can be a big task with many training implications. It’s worth your while to make DCAA compliant time tracking as straightforward as possible. Do your research ahead of time, and try to create a DCAA compliance checklist.

Suppose the DCAA were ever to audit you. In that case, they would check three main areas to see if you comply: how accounts are established, the flow of transactions in accounting systems, and the computations derived from them.

Ready to try out Hour Timesheet’s DCAA compliant timesheet software?

1. How Accounts are Established

A DCAA Compliant Chart of Accounts

You will need to separate which financial transactions are direct, indirect, and unallowable. The DCAA will also examine your Chart of Accounts to ensure you’re adhering to the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Having Accounts Payable, Prepaid Expenses, and Unearned Revenue will indicate that you’re accounting for cost and revenue on an accrual basis.

2. The Flow of Transactions in Accounting System

Trial Balance

Hour Timesheet will allow you to print a Trial Balance that summarizes your accounts’ debits and credit balances. The latter will reveal details such as the opening balance, transactions, transfers, and closing balance. The former will summarize the debits and credit balances on each of your accounts.

General Ledger Detail

The general ledger detail within the Hour Timesheet software will be able to provide you with the beginning balances for each government contract over a limited period.

3. Cost & Computations

The DCAA will audit processes used for allocating revenue and costs to projects, in addition to the way you calculate indirect rates. Many companies use QuickBooks for most of their accounting, and Hour Timesheet makes sure this doesn’t have to change. We can help make your QuickBooks DCAA complaint, ensuring it follows the rules laid out so far, and the following rules about computing revenue and expenses.

Loss & Profit by Job

An essential requirement highlighted in the pre-award survey is your accounting system’s ability to accumulate costs by project. Loss & Profit by Job reports give assurance that this can be done accurately when they agree with the standard Profit & Loss statements.

Labor Distribution Report

Labor distribution is the process of allocating labor costs both direct and indirect to the total time recorded on timesheets. Hour Timesheet allows you to directly tie both direct and indirect hours to the accounts within your accounting system. DCAA needs to see that labor costs are equally distributed among customers, both government and commercial. They want to know that no one is favored or has received a cost subsidy.

Contract Backlog Report

This type of summary allows you to see the percentage of work completed. It also shows the remaining cost to complete each job in your backlog. This type of report indicates how much money is left on a contract, as well as potential contract overrun. It also shows if there are corrective actions required as a result.

Direct Vs Indirect Labor Tracking

Contract employees must consistently track both direct and indirect cost. A direct cost is identifiable to one and only one cost objective. It is normally required or necessary for contract performance. Cost objective is a regulatory term that can include a contract, a project, a task, a contract line item.

To be compliant, government contractors must accumulate costs into indirect cost pools. This can be things such as bid and proposal or an independent research and development project. Hour Timesheet allows a contractor to track time and keep track of all accumulated costs . This is all costs related to hours worked, such as direct costs, any unallowable costs, or indirect costs. Indirect costs are all costs that are not identifiable or incurred for the benefit of one cost objective.

There are many tasks involved in preparing for DCAA auditors to analyze your accounting functions. It can be helpful to create a compliance checklist for government contracting work. Overall, it’s important to maintain audit trails and detailed reports for all employee timesheets and time accounting. Also, make sure to always use a DCAA compliant time entry.

Hour Timesheet and DCAA Compliance Resources

Achieving DCAA audit compliance takes effort, time, and specialist knowledge. Even if you understand the regulations, you’ll also need to arrange your Chart of Accounts and configure Hour Timesheet accordingly. Having a DCAA timecard audit checklist can help you achieve DCAA complaint timekeeping, without all of the confusion.

Contact us today for a free, no commitment, 30-day trial of our software. With our years of experience, we can help you avoid potential DCAA compliance issues before an audit begins.

leave management feature

Hour Timesheet’s Leave Management Feature

With the arrival of Covid-19, the past twelve months have seen unprecedented requests for time off throughout corporate America and worldwide. Whether it has been appeals to use accrued vacation time or questions about what qualifies as sick time, managers have been bombarded with questions like never before. At Hour Timesheet, our leave management feature makes tracking any type of absence easy and straightforward. And in the current environment, our feature is needed by managers like never before.

How To Manage Paid-Sick Leave?

A paid sick- leave can take many different forms depending on what part of the country you live in. At Hour Timesheet, our software is able to manage the differing demands of sick leave. However, as a manager you’ve got to be clear what your local laws stipulate. Local paid sick leave can quickly become an administrative headache for employers who run companies in multiple counties and states. The most difficult issue for employers is trying to develop policies when the local law does not match the state law. In some states there is no statewide law, but there are local laws for paid sick leave. This is the case in states like Texas. You can see how it can get very confusing fast!

The easiest approach for employers who are operating in different jurisdictions is to conduct an audit of their paid sick leave benefits. This is the surest way to ensure they are in compliance with the laws of every jurisdiction in which they operate. A complete audit will provide valuable information that will guide the employer to make decisions about paid sick leave. These decisions will then ensure he or she is in compliance with the patchwork of state and local paid-sick leave laws.

How To Manage Paid-Time Off With The Family Medical Leave Act

The Family Medical Leave Act or FMLA allows all employees time off from their job to bond with their children, care for ill family members or recover from their own serious health problems, all without fear of losing their jobs. This act, which became law across the country in 1993, entitles employees a total of 12 weeks of unpaid leave during a 12-month period for any of the following:

  • The birth of a child and to care for the child after birth;
  • The placement of a child with the employee for adoption or foster care;
  • To care for the spouse, parent or child of the employee who has a serious health condition
  • The Employee’s own serious health condition; and
  • A qualifying military exigency.

There are many details to the FMLA, such as you’re not allowed to make your employees work while on FMLA leave. Yet, you do have the right to contact them on occasion for small details such locating missing files or updates on projects the employee was working on prior to their leave. As an employer you can’t be expected to memorize all of the finer points of this act. The beauty of software such as Hour Timesheet is that it can help you track and manage FMLA to ensure you’re adhering to the law. One less thing to worry about!

FLSA Timekeeping

FLSA Timekeeping Do’s and Don’ts

According to the Fair Labor Standards Act or FLSA, employers must keep accurate records of non-exempt hourly employees. This might seem like a straightforward process. However, it can become too complicated when, for example, your employees travel for work, punch-in early or leave late, or use mobile devices to remain connected to work after hours. The following is a brief overview of some of the do’s and don’ts to help you manage your timekeeping responsibilities.

Do:

1. Use a reliable timekeeping system.

You may choose to use a timekeeping method such as an hour timesheet app or something else, including time clocks, badge readers, timesheets. Yet FLSA timekeeping requirements stipulate it allows employees’ hours for uncertainty or inefficiency (to a maximum of 15 minutes).  You must apply the rounding policy fairly and can’t always round in favor of your company. Please note some states place limits on time rounding. Check all applicable laws before you start using this policy and consider your timekeeping system before applying a time rounding policy.

2. Any and all time worked must be recorded.

Whether it’s time spent checking phone messages, replying to texts, work emails, accessing the company network, or performing other work tasks, all of this considered compensable work time. That’s why non-exempt employees must understand what constitutes work. Then make an effort to report all time spent working outside of standard work hours according to FLSA timekeeping requirements. In a situation where employees can’t use your regular timekeeping system to record after-hours work, it is your responsibility to instruct them on how to promptly and correctly report these hours.

3. Reclassifying breaks as work time.

According to FLSA timekeeping requirements, all rest breaks must be paid if they are 20 minutes or less in duration. Thus, be careful not to let your employees punch out for breaks that last less than 20 minutes or less. Remember, it’s the break’s length, which determines whether payment is required, never the reason for the break.

4. Record training and travel time.

According to FLSA timekeeping requirements, you must compensate employees for any non-productive time in addition to time spent working. Non-productive time can be considered time spent traveling or in training. For instance, if one of your employees spends time traveling overnight for work, he or she must be paid for all time that cuts across their regular work hours, regardless of whether the travel occurs on their regular workday. As their employer, make sure you understand the rules on compensable training and can instruct employees on how to record their time correctly.

Don’t:

1. Never withhold pay if employees fail to submit or sign their timesheets.

According to FLSA timekeeping requirements, an employer must pay employees for all hours on the next regularly scheduled payday. Whether or not the employee has adequately followed the company’s timekeeping procedures.

2. Never withhold pay for unauthorized work time.

Employers may already have a policy in place that requires employees to get permission before working overtime. Yet, according to FLSA timekeeping requirements, employers must pay non-exempt employees for all time worked. That is irrespective of whether it was authorized in advance.  If this policy is not respected by the employees, the employer can introduce disciplinary action. But they can never withhold pay.

3. Do not make automatic deductions for meal periods.

As an employer, it’s in your best interest to require employees to clock out and back in from their meals. This can help ensure that they are paid for missed lunch breaks. It also accounts for instances when employees return from lunch late. Their time records will accurately reflect that they took a meal during the period in question and for how long.

4. Never neglect your recordkeeping responsibilities.

According to FLSA timekeeping requirements, employers must hold on to their time cards and other such records from which wage calculations are gathered for at least two years. Additionally, employers must keep payroll records, including hours worked each day and total hours worked each workweek, for a minimum of three years. These records are necessary for federal tax purposes and must be kept for a minimum of four years.

Hour Timesheet & FLSA Timekeeping Requirements

It sounds simple enough: stay on top of your timekeeping. But when you’re busy running a business, this can be easier said than done. You can quickly get busy, overwhelmed, and the next thing you know, you’ve fallen behind. That’s why it’s essential to develop policies and procedures to ensure that you keep accurate time records for all non-exempt employees. This way, you can ensure they’re being paid adequately for the time they’ve spent working.

Time Keeping Software for Lawyers

When selecting timekeeping software for your law firm, it can be tough to know which specific features you need to keep your business running smoothly. In the past, timekeeping software for lawyers was tracked on paper timesheets. This was followed by an arduous back-and-forth exchange between a client and law firm. After weeks and multiple revisions, the billable time would be manually entered into the firm’s billing system. It wasn’t a very efficient process, but it was the only one available.

Even today, lawyers are repeatedly told to track time accurately; all billable activities should be recorded as soon as they occur. This wasn’t a realistic option given that many billable activities occur outside of the office until mobile time tracking. Then everything changed!
