I have been manually processing payroll from a 3rd party payroll vendor using QuickBooks Pro 2011 (Windows version) and recently switched over to Mac and also upgraded my QuickBooks to the Desktop for Mac 2019 and I can't seem to figure out how to manually enter payroll information. I know Quickbooks wants businesses to use there payroll services but we are not ready or in a position to switch right now. I also see that there have been other responses and instructions given as to how one can set up manual payroll processing but they do not fit/work with the Desktop for Mac 2019 version.
Any help before I invest a ton of time to figure out my own way to manually enter the payroll information would be greatly appreciated.
Entering the payroll information manually is also available in QuickBooks Desktop for Mac. This process involves setting up your employees, setting up accounts and writing a check for the employee.
For the detailed steps about this process, please refer to this article: https://qblittlesquare.com/2011/02/payroll-i-want-to-do-it-myself/.

Did not work on 2019 version. Possibly requires more info in setting up withholding/medcare etc. What tax line is sed etc.
