One of my accounts just converted from QB Desktop to QB Online. Only a small amount of the payroll information transferred from Desktop to Online. I'm in the process of entering the first quarter earnings into Online. I've run into a problem entering employee advances and having the net pay balance. In the desktop version you create a payroll item that is something like Employee Advances. When you issue an advance you do it through Payroll, same with repayment. I need to know two things.
1. How do you issue an employee advance in QB online. Do you do it through payroll?
2. What to you do in order to get the employee's paystubs that include an advance prior to the conversion to balance with the net pay. It seems you can enter any advance repayments, but not the advance. This is the reason the net pay doesn't balance.
Would appreciate any help!
I'll help you in handling this, ndarby.
You can pay your employee in advance by running an unscheduled payroll. Then, set up and assign a cash advance repayment deduction for your employee. here's how to do it:.
Also, here's an article that you browse to help track your payroll transactions in QBO: Run payroll reports.

Hope you’re doing great. I wanted to see how everything is going about your concern yesterday. We're you able to record the advance payment. Do you need any additional help or clarification? If you do, just let me know. I’d be happy to help you at anytime.
Looking forward to your reply. Have a pleasant day ahead!
Same issue here, we have an employee who is on a two week salary and want to advance him only one week it seems that the only option is to advance the entire two weeks salary rather than just one. Is there a workaround to pay just one week in advance?
You can run an unscheduled payroll and edit it to only pay for one week in advance as a workaround. I'll gladly guide you on how to do this below.
