Still interested in a downloadable timesheet template?
Timesheet templates make it easy to track employees’ hours and process payroll. A timesheet tracks, by day, the clock in and clock out times of hourly employees, along with unpaid breaks (like lunch). With a completed timesheet, you and your team members will know exactly how much they’re getting paid, how many hours they worked, and whether or not they accrued any overtime.
Note that these templates don’t include any wage rate information, for a little extra flexibility. That way, managers who don’t have access to wage rates can still fill out the timesheets, employees can work multiple roles (or locations) with different wages for each, and if you offer holiday or other special pay, that can be calculated easily.
Timesheets are manual and time-consuming. There’s a better way. With Homebase, you can save five hours every week and eliminate the need for paper timesheets, for free.

What about a monthly time sheet, or a semi monthly time sheet template?
You can just add rows to this weekly timesheet. While this timesheet template is designed for a five-day workweek, you can always add more rows for additional days. Just be sure you add the right number of days for the pay period. A monthly time sheet template for a month of 30 days would, of course, need 30 rows. But a semi monthly timesheet would need 14, 15, or 16 rows, depending on whether the month has 28, 30, or 31 days.
A better option would be a simple timesheet that handles this math for you automatically.
Why do I need to worry about employee time tracking?
For accurate payroll, labor law compliance, and tracking regular hours and overtime. While it may seem cheapest to use a free monthly timesheet template, using a dedicated professional timesheet app will make specific tasks easier, like tracking sick leave, accrued time off, and more. You’ll also have a system of record stored securely — with time card edit history — you can download whenever you need to.
