Payroll posting date

Right now, our payroll posting date is the cheque date. Is it possible for the posting date to be the pay period ending date instead?

Payroll posting date

Hi there CecileL,


Thanks for reaching out about your payroll entries. QuickBooks Desktop Payroll is a great tool able to assist in calculating your employee's payroll while entering it in your books. I can point you in the right direction for assistance with your payroll entries.


To know if the posting date can be changed for your payroll, I recommend reaching out to the QuickBooks Desktop support team outside of the Community. They'll be able to verify if this change can be done, and if it can, provide the steps to change the day payroll affects the books. You can reach them using the methods outlined in the QuickBooks Desktop software support policies.


If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out here.
