How to set up shareholder health insurance in Quickbooks
Shareholder Health Insurance is insurance that a company buys for its owners (shareholders). It is a way to attract and retain good talent, since it is often difficult for small businesses to compete with larger businesses when it comes to benefits.
There are a few different ways to set up shareholder health insurance in Quickbooks, depending on your company’s needs. You can either set up a separate health insurance policy for your shareholders, or you can add them to your existing company health insurance policy.
If you decide to set up a separate policy, you will need to purchase the policy and then add the premiums to each shareholder’s account in Quickbooks. To do this, go to the “Lists” menu and click on “Customer:Job.” Create a new customer for each shareholder, and be sure to include their name and contact information.
Once you have created the customers, go to the “Banking” menu and click on “Enter Credit Card Charges.” Enter the premium amount for each shareholder in the “Amount” field, and be sure to select the correct customer from the “Customer:Job” drop-down menu. You will also need to enter the date that the premium was charged.
If you decide to add your shareholders to your existing company health insurance policy, you will first need to get their consent. Once you have their consent, go to the “Customers” menu and click on “Enter Credit Card Charges.” Enter the premium amount for each shareholder in the “Amount” field, and be sure to select the correct customer from the “Customer:Job” drop-down menu. You will also need to enter the date that the premium was charged.
You can also choose to set up automatic payments for shareholder health insurance premiums by going to the “Company” menu and clicking on “Preferences.” Under the “Payments” tab, select EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) as your payment method. This will allow you to set up automatic payments from your company’s bank account to pay for shareholder health insurance premiums.
