Hi kristalj, 

 

You'll want to add the historical payroll information to QuickBooks so it will be all in one place. 

 

Here's how:

  1. In the Payroll setup screen, select Payroll History.
  2. Click Yes, I’ve paid employees in 2020 radio button, and then click Continue.
  3. On the paychecks screen, highlight the employee you want to enter paycheck details for and then select Edit payroll history.
  4. Enter the payroll history information for the employee by quarter total, and click Save & close.
  5. Once all the paycheck info has been added for the employee, select the next employee, and repeat the steps.

Here's an article for the complete details: Add Historical Payroll Information to Your QuickBooks Desktop Payroll.

 

For future reference, please check this article on how you can set up payroll in QuickBooks: Get Started with Payroll.

 

If you need additional assistance with payroll, please let me know so that I can help.
