I am also posting payroll manually through the Bank Feed option using QB online. I understand the posting of the payroll check as far as debiting Gross Wages and crediting the payroll liability accounts to equal the net check and then when I post the payment to the IRS through EFTPS it will zero those accounts out. However, how do I create the Payroll expense account for the Employer match portion? If I add a line to the bank transaction to debit the Payroll expense accounts of Social Security Match and Medicare Match, what account do I credit to balance the transaction?

The linked article is showing as deleted. Is there somewhere else I can see to determine where to place the employer paid portion of the taxes?

Today I paid for full payroll services and I need help to get payroll out tonight.
I had previously purchased payroll enhanced and now all of the employee information isn't there. Can I merge them or can you take over and do it?
Thank you for posting here in the Community. I'm here to assist you with any questions you may have with your subscription in QuickBooks Online.
