View My Paycheck

QuickBooks is a popular accounting software many small businesses use to manage their finances. One helpful feature in QuickBooks is the ‘View My Paycheck’ option, which allows employees to view their pay stub details directly within QuickBooks.

What Is View My Paycheck?

View My Paycheck allows employees to log into QuickBooks and view their pay stub information for each pay period instead of waiting for printed pay stubs. The feature displays paystub details like hours worked, wage rates, deductions, taxes withheld, reimbursements, overtime pay, paid time off, net pay, etc.


  • Employees can access paystub data anytime without contacting the payroll or HR department. This improves transparency.
  • It eliminates the need for manual paystub distribution. Employees can print whenever needed.
  • Employees can review payroll accuracy by cross-verifying paystub details against time sheets.
  • It enables remote employees to view pay information digitally from any location.
  • The self-service access reduces HR/payroll workload related to paystub inquiries and corrections.

How It Works

View My Paycheck syncs with the payroll data within QuickBooks. Admins need to enable access for each employee and set up login credentials. Once logged in, employees can find their paystubs organized by pay period for quick reference.


To start using View My Paycheck, QuickBooks admins must activate the feature, create employee user accounts, and customize access. Employees can then log into QuickBooks online or desktop to view digital versions of their pay stubs and tax documents.
