Improved W1 tax code handling in QBO journals

By Richard McLean

0 min read

One of the great things about the integration between KeyPay and QuickBooks Online is how simple it makes preparing your BAS by correctly allocating the W1 and W2 tax codes when posting journals.

Previously, when pre-tax deductions that were being paid to a bank account were being posted to a journal, the W1 tax code wasn’t being applied and therefore had to be adjusted manually to attach the tax code.

We don’t like manual processes, so we’ve improved the journal postings from KeyPay to QBO so that the W1 tax code will now automatically be applied when posting journals for pre-tax deductions paid to a bank account.

This is only a small change, but it’s important in removing a manual step in the payroll process and ensuring an accurate BAS.
