I want credit employee an amount per paycheck as a way to help them pay for insurance. How do i do that in quickbook?
I'd be glad to walk you through the steps on how to credit your employee, @fd_com.
You'll have to set up a Payroll Item first, so you can credit your employee an amount per paycheck. Also, make sure the expense and liability accounts of the created company contribution (payroll item) are the same.
If you need further assistance with the steps, I'd suggest contacting our Payroll Support Team. They have tools like screen sharing that will guide you in setting up the credit for your employees. To reach them, just click this link: Contact QuickBooks Desktop support.
Also, here's a helpful article that will help you in case you want to correct year-to-date (YTD) additions or deductions on a paycheck:

Thanks for getting back to us, fd_com.
You'll have to create a payroll item first to keep track of the additional help you've provided. Thus, the steps shared by my colleague is the correct way of recording it.
You can use a dummy name to use a vendor when creating the payroll item.
Afterward, you're good to send a paycheck.
That should do it. Keep me posted whenever you need help.
