Use QB Self-Employed. Pay myself thru ADP. There's no category for PAYROLL on categorizing expenses, only COMMISSIONS. What do others do to account for salary as expense?

Hi there, @kirkmichie.

 

Allow me to share some details about the availability of payroll in QuickBooks Self-Employed.

 

When categorizing expenses, the Payroll or Wages option is unavailable. Since QBSE doesn't have a payroll service, you can only categorize it as Other Business Expenses and tag  it as Personal.

 

To know more information about the description of each categorization, you can check out this article: Categorize transactions in QuickBooks Self-Employed. You can click on the Learn about income and expense categories in QuickBooks Self-Employed section to know more about the paycheck's tags.

 

I'll be here if you have other questions with QuickBooks. Leave a comment below to let me know. Have a good one.

Thank you! I really appreciate the detail. I was afraid that might be the case, but regardless, your confirmation keeps me from heading down a rabbit hole :-)

 

Happy Holidays!
