QBO Plus..edit payroll items

I recently converted from QB Desktop to QBO Plus.  I need to edit a payroll item.  I reimburse my employees mileage on their paychecks.  But the "mileage reimbursement" is not linked to Mileage Expense as it was before I converted from QB Desktop.  It is now recorded as an Expense Reimbursement.   I need the "mileage reimbursement" to appear under Mileage when I run Mileage reports but it isn't.  I have to enter a journal entry and move it from Expense Reimbursement.  I was able to change this in QB Desktop.   Any help???

Re: QBO Plus..edit payroll items

Hi there, @sahbookkeeper,

 

Let me walk you through editing the payroll item so it will show up under the mileage expense.

 

After converting your data from QuickBooks Desktop to Online, you also need to map your payroll item. This is to help posts your item correctly since the data imported to QBO are posted to the Chart of Accounts.

 

To do this task, let's go to your payroll settings and map the item from there. Here's how:

  1. Click the Gear icon at the top right.
  2. Select Payroll Settings under Your Company.
  3. Click Accounting under Preferences.

  4. On the Wage Expense Accounts section, select the Mileage Expense for your employee's reimbursement.

  5. Click OK when you're done.

If you need to setting up accounts for your payroll liabilities and expenses, check this out: Set up Payroll account preferences.

 

Should you need assistance, please let me know. I'm always around whenever you need help editing your payroll item.
