When you’ve paid employees in the current year, QuickBooks Online Payroll also needs totals for wages, deductions, and taxes for each employee you’ve paid. You’ll find this information on your payroll reports, employee pay stubs, or spreadsheets from your prior payroll solution. Here’s what we will need:
|Year to Date Totals for Each Employee||Report should include:
|Year to Date Totals for Each EE as of the last paycheck in the previous quarter||Report should include:
|Payroll totals for the current quarter by pay date||Report should include:
|Year to date and quarter to date totals of company-paid taxes||This includes employer taxes such as:
|All tax payments paid this year||Transaction Receipts should include:
If you don’t have the information handy, you can come back at a later time. But this information is required to complete each employee’s setup to ensure that your employees’ paychecks and payroll taxes are accurate.
