US Payroll – Overtime Override setting on Timecards entry

By | May 7, 2020

In this blog we are going to discuss about the feature which is been already there in Sage 300 US Payroll. The Timecard screen provides a checkbox option for ‘Overtime Override’ by using which we can specifically mention the overtime hours and it’s rate. This basically allows us to override the automatic calculation for overtime by payroll as the effect of options set regarding overtime schedule.

Navigation for the setting:

You can navigate to the ‘Payroll Timecards’ screen as US Payroll >> Payroll Transactions >> Payroll Timecards >> Timecards.

On the ‘Payroll Timecards’ screen you will find the checkbox for ‘Overtime Override’ please refer to the screenshot below:

You can see in the above screenshot, the ‘Overtime Override’ checkbox is set off; due to which user will not be able to get bifurcation on out of hours worked how many are regular working hours and how many hours employee has worked as an overtime hour.

If require user can check the ‘Overtime Override’ checkbox and set this option as on. This will add extra two columns for ‘OT Hours Override’ and ‘OT Rate Override’ just besides the ‘Rate/Amt/Pct’ column. In which user will be able to specify out of total hours worked how many hours are Overtime and at what rate the employee will be paid for this overtime hours.

Please see the below screenshot for your reference:

In the above screenshot, you can check extra two columns added and the total of hours specified in the ‘OT Hours Override’ will be displayed at the left bottom as overtime hours and the ‘Regular’ hours are displayed by deducting ‘OT Hours Override’.


  1. This option works for salary and wage earning which uses employee calculation method as fixed, flat or hourly rate.
  2. This option cannot be set for the timecards in the bulk. You have to set this option true for the each timecard for which you want to override automatic overtime calculation.
  3. Selecting ‘Overtime override’ option on timecard will clear and disable the “Include in FLSA Calculation” option from specific earning.
