Glad to see you here in the Community, @cameronk.
I can help you apply the payroll deduction to an invoice of your employee in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
I've also added this article about recording customer payments in QBO: Record invoice payments. This way, you can also record it once you receive the payment to show the paid invoice.
Don't hesitate to drop a comment below if you have other questions. I'm always happy to help. Take care!
Hello there, @MadJack11.
Yes, you can set up a new payment method when recording your invoice payment in QuickBooks. This way, you can track the transactions created. I'll show you how:

You'll also want to run the Invoices and Received Payments report. This will give you the list of all invoices and the payments that are applied to them. Just go to the Reports menu type in Invoices and Received Payments in the Search bar.

How to you record the invoice as being paid but deduction has already been done through payroll?I have several invoices that show outstanding but in fact are paid through a payroll deduction.
Thanks for coming by, @kimforbes.
I'll share the steps on how to record your employee's payments into your invoices. You'll want to create a liability account, map the employee deduction into that account. After that, create a journal entry from the liability account to the A/R account. This process lets you apply the payments to your invoices.
To create an account:
To create a journal entry, just go to +New, then tap Journal entry. Here's how it looks like:
Feel free to browse for specific topics here and look for responses that fit your concern, if you need help with other task in QBO.
Let me know if you still have questions or concerns with payroll or invoices. I'm more than happy to help. Take care and stay safe.
Thank you for getting back to us. I'll also explain further what Shiella provided above, so you can easily follow the steps. But first, I assume that you've already created a liability account.
First, you'll want to map the deduction item to a liability account. You can skip this section if you already did it.
Second, create a journal entry to move funds from the liability account to the Accounts Receivable (A/R) account. This will become credits on the customer profile of the employee and can be used to pay their invoices. By the way, I assume the employee already has a customer profile because you invoiced them.
Third, pay the invoices using the credits.
That will do it. After paying the invoice, you can check the customer's balance in their profile and check the balance of the liability account in the Chart of Accounts.
I'm just around if you have other questions about paying the invoices of your employees.
