I know how important it is to import your payroll information, High end. I'm here to share some insights.
Currently, the option to import payroll data is unavailable. In QuickBooks Desktop, we can only import IIF files like your bank transactions, journal entries, and more. You can also import lists like your customer, vendor, and employee lists.
As a workaround, you may consider using a third-party application to import your payroll data. To do so, I'd recommend visiting our QuickBooks Apps page.
Additionally, you can import the checks as standard-type transactions in QuickBooks. You can use the IIF file format as a sample. This way, you can make sure the data are placed in the correct field.
Please come back and keep us posted on your progress in searching for the app that suits your needs. I'm determined to get this resolved.
