To start, I want to say I *KNOW* why Direct Deposit Paychecks show as ZERO on the account register. That's not the issue.
However, I hate that they're there. I look at the register on a daily basis, and having a bunch of zero transactions (we do payroll weekly) makes for a lot of unnecessary scrolling.
I know I can't delete them. But can I move them somewhere else? I was thinking about maybe creating a bank account thru the chart of accounts labeled "Paystubs" (or something similar) and just moving them there. Being that they'd be all zeros, this "account" would never have a balance and shouldn't show on reports.
Has anyone else done something similar? Or is there an easier solution?
You can check with your accountant about moving these transactions to avoid messing up your books. For now, you can send request about your preferred way of posting these transactions through feedback. Just go to Help, select Send Feedback Online, and choose Product Suggestion.

This change is just inside QuickBooks so the actual bank where the amounts are coming from would still be the same. The zero amounts showing in your register are the paychecks while the actual amounts are the DD Liability Checks. If you change the bank account for Open the create Paychecks form with, the zero amounts in your register will be move to the account you’ve selected.
