Payroll Journal Entry

Our staff have their time proportionally allocated by class and therefore I would like to proportionally allocate their taxes by class as well.  However, QB manual payroll doesn't seem to allow for this as far as I can tell? 

I figure it's easier to just set it up as a memorized journal entry each month but the issue is, I'm not able to allocate the A/P line to an employee.  I get a pop up warning message saying "Please choose a vendor when using an Accounts Payable account as a line item".   Any suggestions?   I certainly never had this issue using older versions of QB Desktop so it seems like it's a recent change?

Payroll Journal Entry

Hi there, @UVP.

 

The message "Please choose a vendor when using an Accounts Payable account as a line item" appears when Account Payable account is chosen on a transaction but the name associated with the account is not a vendor name.

 

You'll want to use the Liability account for your staff to be able to save the journal entry. I also recommend getting in touch with your accountant for guidance. This way, we'll ensure the accuracy of your accounts after recording this.

 

Additionally, you can always check our Reports and accounting page and learn some tips and managing your accounting.

 

You can always get back to me whenever you have other concerns. I'm just a post away. Take care and keep safe!
