How can I set up payroll expense account associate with accrued wage payable?

Hi,

 

I am trying to set up payroll expense account (ex. salary expense) NOT associate with bank account. For example, currently my QB is set up as when I record salary expense on DR it directly create a journal entry that will be credited from checking account.

 

I want to set it up like below,

 

<when payroll expense recorded>

salary expense    XXX

                                         accrued wage payable XXX

 

<when the paycheck is actually cashed out>

accrued wage payable xxx

                                         checking account          XXX

 

Please help me!

Thanks for dropping by the Community space, stevenlee.

 

Let me provide some additional information about setting up a payroll expense account that’s associated with accrued wage payable.

 

If you’re referring to tracking your payroll expense to another account, the option is currently unavailable in the Payroll feature. When tracking payroll transactions, you’ll have to select a bank to properly record them.

 

The information I provided should get you on the right track.

 

Reach out to me directly if you have additional questions working in QuickBooks. Please know that I'm here to answer them. Have a great rest of you day.
