Payroll/HSA/health insurance question

I’m a 100% shareholder of an S-corporation with no employees. I know that my health insurance premiums and HSA contributions are added to salary. In my situation, I’m not paying myself in 2019 until 3/15/19 (I pay myself monthly each 15th). However, I will be making health insurance premiums payments and HSA contributions in January and February.  How do I handle this situation from a payroll stance? Like, how do I add my January and February health insurance premiums and HSA contributions to salary when I won’t be taking a paycheck those 2 months?

Payroll/HSA/health insurance question

Welcome and thank you for posting here in the Community, @LAC1.


It's my pleasure to help you record the health insurance premiums and HSA contributions in QuickBooks Online (QBO).


You may need to create/enter a manual expense with the correct amount to record the contributions. Let me show you how.


  1. Go to the Plus (+) icon.
  2. Select Expense under Vendors.
  3. Fill in the necessary information.
  4. Under Account details, select the correct expense account (health insurance premiums and HSA contributions) or click Add new if no accounts created.
  5. Add the amount.
  6. Click Save and close.


Feel free to add a comment below if you have any other QuickBooks/Payroll concerns. Have a wonderful day!
