Payroll check cleared for wrong amount

Quickbooks printed a payroll check for $439.09. The bank cleared it as $439.00. The employee doesn't care about the $ .09. How do rectify this without effecting the employee's earnings in QB [Pro 2019 Desktop]? Thanks.

Payroll check cleared for wrong amount

Hi there, SproutAgain.


The best way to rectify this without affecting the employee's earnings is to create a journal entry. In this case, I recommend working with your accountant for further guidance when recording it in QuickBooks.


Here's how:

  1. From the Company menu, select Make General Journal Entries.
  2. On the form, fill in the date and enter the entry number.
  3. In the first row, select an account and enter $.09  in the Credit column.
  4. In the second row, choose the bank account and enter $.09 in the Debit column.
  5. Once you're done, click on Save & Close.



See the Create a journal entry in QuickBooks Desktop article for more information.


Let me also share this link that will provide some tips in creating a journal entry.
