This weeks Freebie Friday giveaway here on the QuickBooks for Contractors blog is an Employee New Hire Checklist.
One of the hardest things about being a bookkeeper or payroll clerk, is that we seldom receive any information about new employees – other than the information that comes from their Federal W-4, State W-4, and their I-9 form.
As a bookkeeper in the construction industry, a lot of times the ONLY information that I ever received was a scrawled note with the employees name on it – and I’d spend the rest of my week trying to chase down the rest of the information that I needed, because of course that employee needed a paycheck come Friday! Does that sound familiar? I bet it does!
Do yourself a favor and put together New Hire Packets so that you can get the information you need!
What should a “New Hire Packet” contain? Federal W-4, State W-4, and Form I-9 at a minimum. Additionally, you may want to utilize our free “New Hire Checklist” to provide your bookkeeper with additional information about the employee.
Our New Hire Checklist is a 5-page Word document, which you can further customize to meet your needs.

Enjoy, and Happy Friday to everyone! 🙂
