## What Is a Wages Sheet?

A wages sheet is a human resources document used by an organization to determine the wages of its employees. It is often referred to as payroll or payroll sheet. Every employee receives a wages sheet after each pay period, which summarizes the total amount they owe their employers for the work theyâ€™ve completed during that time period.

## 7 Steps to Create a Daily Wages Sheet Format in Excel

In this article, weâ€™ll go through 7 simple and quick procedures for creating a daily wages sheet format in Excel. Use these techniques to quickly construct a daily wage structure.

In the following data set, we have **In Time** and **Out Time** of some employees of a company. Their hourly wage is also given. We need to calculate their daily wages based on their working times. Letâ€™s proceed one step at a time.

### Step 1: Calculate Total Daily Working Time in Daily Wages Sheet Format in Excel

To calculate the total daily **Working Time**, we need to subtract the **In Time** from **Out Time**. We also need to subtract 1 hour for** Lunch Break**.

We can use the following formula in cell **G7** to determine the total *Working Time*.

`=(E7-D7)-F7`

Here **E7** is the cell of *In Time*, **D7** is the cell of *Out Time* and **F7** is the cell of *Lunch Break* time.

Now drag the **Fill Handle** up to cell **G12**. Then we will get the rest of the *working time* for other employees.

### Step 2: Determine Daily Regular Work Time in Daily Wages Sheet Format in Excel

In this step, our goal is to determine whether an employee has completed his regular 8 hours of working time or less. If an employee has worked more than 8 hours; For example 10 hours, in this cell 8 hours will be recorded. His extra 2 hours of work will go to the **Over Time** section.

We are going to use an **IF function** here. The logic is if the *Working Time* is less than the **Standard Working Hours** return the *Working time* to the cell. If this is not true then it means the employee has worked 8 hours or more. So it will return 8 hours if the condition is not true.

We can use the following formula in cell **H7**.

`=IF(G7<$I$4,G7,$I$4)`

Here, **G7 **represents starting cell of *Working Time* and **I4 **refers to the value of standard working hours.

By dragging the **Fill Handle** we will get *Regular Working Time* for the rest of the employees.

### Step 3: Calculate Daily Over Time

We can calculate **Over Time (OT)** by subtracting *Regular Working Time* from *Working Time*. Here we are going to use the **IF Function** again. The logic is if the difference is greater than 0 it means the has worked *Over Time (OT)*. But if it is less or equal to 0, it means the employee has not worked any *Over Time (OT)*.

We can use the following formula in cell **I7** to calculate *Over Time (OT)*.

`=IF(G7-H7>0,G7-H7,0)`

In this formula,** H7** represents the cell of *Regular Work Time*.

Afterward, drag the **Fill Handle** and you will get* Over Time (OT) *for the remaining employees.

### Step 4: Determine Over Time Wage Rate in Daily Wages Sheet Format in Excel

Here we assumed the **OT** wage rate is **1.5 **times the **Regular Wage/ Hour**. So, to determine ** OT Wage/ Hour** we need to multiply

*Regular Wage/ Hour*by

**1.5.**

By using the following formula in cell **E15** we can get the *OT Wage/ Hour*.

`=D15*1.5`

Here, **D15** refers to the cell of *Regular Wage/ Hour*.

After that, just drag or double-click the **Fill Handle** to get the rest of the data.

### Step 5: Compute Daily Regular Wages in Daily Wages Sheet Format in Excel

To compute **Regular Hoursâ€™ Payment** we need to multiply the *Regular Work Time* by the *Regular Wage/ Hour*. But here* Regular Work Time* is in time format. We need to convert it into a number format data. For this, we are going to use the **HOUR function** of **Excel**.

We can apply the formula given below in cell **F15** to compute *Regular Hoursâ€™ Payment*.

`=D15*HOUR(H7)`

Now use the **Fill handle** so we can get the remaining data.

### Step 6: Calculate Daily Over Time Wages

To calculate** OT Payment** we need to multiply **OT Wage/ Hour **and **Over Time (OT)**. Again we are going to use the **HOUR Function** to convert *Over Time* hours to number format.

We can use the following formula in cell **G15** to calculate the *Daily Over Time Wages*.

`=E15*HOUR(I7)Â `

In this formula, **E15** refers to the cell of *OT Wage/ Hour* and **I7** represents the cell of *Over Time (OT)*.

Afterward, double-click or drag the **Fill Handle**. Then you will get *OT Payment* for all the employees.

### Step 7: Determine Daily Net Wages in Daily Wages Sheet Format in Excel

Finally to determine the **Net Payment**, simply add the *Regular Hours Payment* and *OT Payment*.

By using the following formula in cell **H15**, we can determine *Daily Net Wages*.

`=F15+G15Â `

Here **F15 **describes the cell of *Regular Hoursâ€™ Payment* and **G15** refers to the cell of *OT Payment*.

Now by using the **Fill Handle** we can get the *Net Payment* for the rest of the employees.

## Things To Remember

- In
**Step 2**, while writing the formula, make sure that you choose**Absolute Cell Reference**for cell**I4**. - In
**Step 5**and**Step 6**, use the**HOUR function**before multiplying it with the wages rate. Otherwise, you will get weird and wrong outputs.
