How does one enter a partial payment of a payroll liability using the payroll module?

I have a client who has only remitted a portion of the source deductions outstanding to the CRA from the previous period. I am wondering if there is a way to enter this partial payment into QBO using the payroll module or if I will have to journal this into the bookkeeping/create an expense?

Hi there, 

 

QuickBooks Online makes it easy to enter a partial payment and I'll be glad to help you record it in QB Online.

 

Here are the steps on how to record a manual tax payment:

  1. Select Taxes from the left menu, and then Payroll Tax.
  2. Click Enter Prior Tax History.
  3. Click Add Payment.
  4. Select the tax type and the liability period then enter:
    • Payment Date
    • Check Number (optional)
    • Notes (optional)
    • Tax Item Amounts
  5. Click OK.
  6. You will then be back to the Prior Tax Payments screen.

Once you've recorded the payment, it will reduce the liability showing due on your account.

 

Give this a try and if you have questions, I recommend contacting our support team using this link.

The response above has been helpful; however, the payment does not show up on the reconciliation as it is not linked to any bank account. Would a second entry - journal or expense - need to be entered in order to reconcile the amount against the bank? 

 

I've checked everywhere, and this payment is not posted as coming from any one bank account.
