Welcome to the Community and thank you for choosing our service, @johnidy.
Depending on the accounting system you're using, you may or may not import historical payroll transactions into QuickBooks. If this is the case, you can just enter an opening balance per employee when getting started with payroll in QuickBooks Online.
If you're using Xero or MYOB, you can refer to this KeyPay site for more information about the integration: https://www.keypay.com.au/feature/integration.
You can also refer to this guide: Migrating your payroll from the different accounting systems.
I've got your back and will be here should you need additional assistance. Take care.
Thanks @Fiat Lux - ASIA -
Do you have an example of line items I need to include in the JE csv to reflects the employees payment? I am in Australia. Hence, I need to break the payments into "Ordinary Time", "PAYG Witheld", and "Superannuation" components.
Do you have an example csv file?
Thanks again for your help.
