How to reconcile bank statements for payroll historical cheques?

This was a great question, as I'm facing the same situation.

 

QBO payroll has asked for the historical payroll data up to April 30, 2023 and also year to date, which ends up being 1 pay period later, so the numbers are close. I have seen and entered the historical tax payment information. However, Nowhere can I see an option to enter historical paycheques/ direct deposits so i can reconcile my bank account.  so i have 8 payroll cheques outstanding on my bank account and no idea where or how to enter the historical paycheques. the QuickBooks links you gave in your answer doesn't help.

 

Here is the question:

if there is no place to enter historicical payroll paycheque/ DD amounts, and if i were to enter it manually, via the journal, I would credit my bank account, but what is/are the Debits? at the moment I just put the debit to my suspense account to figure out later, so i could reconcile my bank. But there needs to be an area to input this a lot easier. (like the tax payments). 

 

thanks for your response,
