Bi-Weekly Timesheet Templates

Many companies pay their employees every other week. In fact, it’s one of the most commonly used methods in the American business world. To take full advantage of this practice, however, it’s imperative that you calculate your payroll quickly and accurately. The biweekly timesheets at the bottom of this page are available for free download in the Excel, PDF, and Word formats.

Using Bi-Weekly Timesheet Templates

There are a number of different timesheet templates that managers can use to save time and effort while generating accurate company payroll. In addition to the daily, weekly, and monthly templates you might have encountered, Time Clock Wizard also offers four types of free biweekly templates for your convenience.

As a payroll manager, you probably already know that each type of timesheet template has its own unique set of benefits. For many companies, the chief benefit of bi-weekly templates is that you only have to use them to generate paychecks twice a month. In other words, they save you significantly more time than daily or weekly timesheets.

The downside to biweekly timesheets is that they don’t give the quick, up-close view of labor costs that weekly and daily timesheets afford. However, a little extra effort will yield the fine-grained analyses you need and this slight drawback doesn’t prevent most companies from using bi-weekly timesheets for both hourly employees and outside contractors.

The Perfect Timesheet For Every Situation

Below, you’ll find four types of free downloadable biweekly timesheet templates. Each is ideal for a different type of work situation and is available in Excel, PDF, and Word formats. As you’ll see in the individual descriptions, the Excel format gives you access to the most useful features, but the PDF and Word versions will certainly prove useful as well.

The best choice of biweekly timesheets depends on the type of worker you’re dealing with and your company’s situation. A brief examination of the four types will tell you everything you need to know to make an informed decision.
