Hi, does quickbooks online support payroll?

Hello, bkamau

As of the moment, QuickBooks Online international versions doesn’t have a built in payroll feature. You might want to search and download an application online that’ll help you with your payroll needs.

Like you I’m sure other users would like to have this feature as well. I’ll make sure to take note and share this preference to our developers for future updates.

Drop by again in the Community if you have other questions about QuickBooks.

Hi, does quickbooks online support payroll?

I am trying to input payroll on an a client but it will not complete the entry



Hi, does quickbooks online support payroll?

You can manually record payroll transactions in your QuickBooks account, @BMedina7


The feature to track payroll in QuickBooks Online International is unavailable. However, you can add journal entries to track them to your account. 


You'll just have to debit the expense account used to track gross wages and Employer Contribution. Then, credit the bank account where payroll is deducted from. 


Here's how:

  1. Go to the + New button and choose Journal Entry.
  2. Set the paycheque's date.
  3. Enter your debit and credit accounts and all the necessary information. 
  4. Click Save once you're done.

Check this article for more information: Recording payroll transactions manually. Also, here's more information on how to create a journal entry in QuickBooks Online.


I'm always here if you need more help with your transactions. Keep safe and have a wonderful day!
