Can previous payroll be added to quickbooks?

Hi there, emcllcja.


If you haven't run your first payroll in QuickBooks Online, then yes, you can add the payroll information through prior payrolls.


Here are the steps:

  1. On the left panel, click Payroll.
  2. From the Employees tab, click the employee's name.
  3. In the employee's profile, click the Enter [Year] prior pay details button. Note: Make sure to enter the employee's pay schedule and pay rate so you can see this option.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions and enter the payroll history.
  5. Click Done.

You can also check this article for more information: Set up a prior payroll for QuickBooks Online Payroll.


Otherwise, contact one of our Payroll Support Specialists if you no longer have the option, or if it affects multiple paychecks.
