Biweekly Timecard Calculator
with Unpaid Lunch Break

[ Skip to Calculator ] Calcy pointing down

The Biweekly Timecard Calculator on this page will reduce the time it takes to total up work hours and calculate gross wages.

I know from experience that manual timecard processing is a tedious, time-consuming chore that does nothing but hinder you from improving your bottom line.

And what sucks most about it is that your large competitors can afford their own accountant or payroll processing department -- along with those high-priced computerized time clocks that practically does their payroll for them.

So wouldn't it be nice if you could spend less time manually processing timecards, and more time improving your bottom line, so that some day you too will be able to turn your manual payroll processing over to a machine and an accountant?

Good news!

The online timecard calculator on this page is the fastest hours and wages calculator on the web (pardon my bias). How do I know?

Give Your Employees a Low-Cost, Life-Changing "Pay Raise"

One of the most frustrating things I experienced as a restaurant owner was watching my employees throw away the money they were working so hard to earn.

Instead of managing their take-home pay for the greatest return on the time they have invested, it was obvious that most of their otherwise discretionary income was being eaten up by self-sabotaging financial actions and in-actions.

Since, like most people in our society, my employees had never been taught how to accurately forecast the net-consequences of their decisions before they made them, most had no clue as to the devastating effects their present spending decisions were having on their potential future wealth.

Can't afford to give your employees a pay raise? Give them a lifetime "pay raise" instead, by providing them with resources for learning how to give themselves a pay raise.

Not all will be open to using the resources, but those that do will be forever grateful that you made the resources available to them.

Because I visited every online time-entry calculator I could find and this one beat them all. Here are a few of the reasons why:

  • No punctuation or on-the-hour trailing zeros required.
  • No need to enter or select AM/PM.
  • No waiting for the page to reload when moving from one employee's timecard to the next.
  • Mistakes are easily detectable and can be quickly corrected without starting over.

But more than just saving time while entering in and out times, you will also eliminate having to calculate gross wages separately.

Gross Wages Calculated Automatically

If you enter the employee's hourly wage and overtime eligibility -- either before or after entering in/out times -- the timecard calculator will calculate the employee's gross wages at the same time.

Plus, all of your entries will be neatly formatted and made available in a printer-friendly, two-week hours and wages report that you can print out.

Need Other Versions?

If the timecard calculator on this page doesn't meet your needs, here are your other options:

If none of the above versions meet your needs, please contact me and describe your needs in detail and I will consider creating another version.

Or, if you have a suggestion for improving an existing version, please let me know that as well. Just be sure to reference the calculator by its web address ( so I know which calculator you are referring to.

With that, let's use the 2-week timecard calculator to calculate work-hours and gross wages from the employee's in/out times for the pay period.

2 Column Bi-Weekly TimeCard Calculator
Calcy sign introducing Bi-weekly Timecard Calculator

Instructions: If you would like the calculator to also calculate gross wages -- including overtime -- complete the top section of the form.

Next, enter the applicable "In" and "Out" time blocks for each day your employee worked during the 2-week pay period.

You can enter timeclock times in military or standard format, with or without the ":" (colon) and with or without trailing zeros for on-the-hour times. Here are a few examples:

Standard Time Saver Military
8:00 8 800
1:45 145 1445

For blocks of time that cover 12 or more hours (6am - 6pm), please use military times (refer to the Pop-up Military Time Conversion Chart).

Finally, enter the employee's name and the date of the end of the two-week pay period as you would like it to appear on the printable timecard hours and wages report.

Once you have finished filling in the biweekly timecard, click the "Calculate Work Hours and Gross Wages" button.

Mouse over the blue question marks for a further explanation of each entry field. More in-depth explanations can be found in the glossary of terms located beneath the Timecard Calculator.

If you use Internet Explorer and you can't print the report, all I can suggest is that you try Google Chrome or FireFox instead.

Updated on October 18, 2014: Added option to pay overtime after 10 hours per day and added fields for separate totals for each week of the two week period.

Hourly pay rate: Optional: Enter the regular hourly rate of pay for the employee you are entering in/out times for.

Overtime rate: Optional: Select the overtime option that best describes your overtime pay method. If the employee is eligible for overtime pay, enter the factor that the regular rate is multiplied by and the timecard calculator will calculate the hourly overtime rate for you. Or, simply enter the actual overtime pay rate in the far right-hand field.

Day of the week your bi-weekly workweek starts on: Optional: Select the day of the week you want the timecard calculator to start at. The Day column will automatically be populated with the correct abbreviated day names. If you want the date included for each day (e.g. Mon Jan 1), select the month, day, and year of the first day of the pay period. If not, leave the month set to N/A.

Time totals as hours:minutes or hours.hour-fraction? If you would like the time totals formatted to hours and minutes, select HH:MM (7 and 1/2 hours will appear as 7:30). Or, if you would like the time totals formatted to hours and fraction of an hour, select HH.HH (7 and 1/2 hours will appear as 7.50). Note that you can switch from one to the other format at anytime during time entry process, at which time the calculator will automatically reformat the daily totals.

Time entry format: When entering In/Out times, you can enter the times in military or standard format, with or without the colon (:), and with or without on-on-the-hour trailing zeros. The printer friendly report will reformat your entries to include the colons, regardless of how you enter the times.

Military time format: If you need to enter a time span that is 12 or more hours in length, please use the pop-up military time conversion chart to look up the military times you will need to enter ("0000" will not be read by the calculator).

Day column: You can change the text in this column to whatever identifier you would like to show up on the bi-weekly report. For example, instead of just "Mon", you can choose to enter "10/25 - Monday", or anything else as long as it's 25 characters or less. The longer the day titles, the wider the printable time sheet report will be.

Block 1 column: This period is normally the period before lunch break.

Block 2 column: This period is normally the period following lunch break.

HH:MM/HH.HH column: This calculated column will total up your hours:minutes (or hours.hour) for each day, and then total up the hours:minutes (or hours.hour) for the two week period. Fields in this column recalculate as you enter or make changes to times in the time sheet.

Regular row: This row contains your regular hourly rate of pay, your total regular hours for the two-week pay period, and your gross regular wages.

Overtime row: This row contains your over-time hourly pay rate, your total over-time hours for the two-week period, and your gross over-time wages.

Total row: This row contains your total hours and gross pay for the two-week pay period.
