Can I issue check to myself? I should have started getting paid beginning January of this year, can I do it on quickbooks for record purposes and issue checks.

Hello there, @user54706.

 

I'd like to commend you for successfully adding yourself as an employee on your QuickBooks Online. 

 

With regards to your question, yes, you can create a check for yourself. Just make sure that you've selected January as the start date of your payroll. 

 

To regenerate a payroll check, please follow these steps:

 

  1. In the left navigation bar, select on Workers.
  2. Click on Employees.
  3. Hit on Run payroll.
  4. Find find your name in the employees' lists.
  5. Enter your compensation, including any salary adjustments, vacation or sick hours, and other pay types.
  6. Confirm the pay period and check date.
  7. Select Preview Payroll, and then select Submit payroll.
  8. If creating a paper check, hand write or print the check and give it to the employee by the check date.
  9. Select Finish payroll.
