How to include manually written payroll check in wages, etc. totals when payroll check was not processed through payroll?
In QuickBooks Online, we can create a backdated payroll check if it meets any of these conditions:
If you have activated the payroll feature recently and haven't processed payroll yet through the program, you'll have an option to enter prior payroll checks. You can use this article to enter them: Enter Gross Up Prior Payrolls Online Payroll.
Otherwise, you'll need to contact our QuickBooks Online Payroll Team. They'll be able to pull up your account and help you enter the backdated payroll checks.
If you have activated the payroll feature for a long time and have missed a few payroll checks, we can create unscheduled checks by following the steps in this article: Create Unscheduled Payroll Checks.
In addition to that, we can only create unscheduled payroll checks up to 6 months ago pay periods. If you need more than that, I'd recommend reaching out our QuickBooks Online Payroll Team. You can use the link above to reach them.
Feel free to let me know if you need anything else.
