I'd be happy to help you with recording the two payments for the cheque. QuickBooks makes it easy to do this and I'll be happy to show you how.
There are a few steps we need to do to get you all set. Follow the steps below:
Step 1: Create a Bank Deposit for the partial payment received from the customer.
Step 2: Receive the payment.
Now that the partial payment is already applied to the invoice, you can now match the deposit to your bank transactions. You can check out this helpful article to know more about the process:

Thank you for the reply, however, I did not mention that it was a paycheque. Sorry, the payment was split into two amounts because it was done by bank transfer and was over the banking limit for the day which was $3000 per day. The pay was for $5500, and it was paid as $3000, one day and $2500 the next. Is it possible to combine the payment to match what was originally set out in the payroll journal, thank you.
I see what you're saying. You can match the two transaction to the original one by going to your Banking page and following these steps:
