How to enter salary expense to employees where it is not paid yet, just accrued.

Hello there, @amit.gupta,

 

Currently, QuickBooks Online International version doesn't have a payroll function inbuilt. As a workaround, journal entries are a good way to record the accounting information for your payroll expenses.

 

Here's how to create a journal entry:

  1. Click the Create + icon at the right top.
  2. Select Journal Entry under Other.
  3. Under the Journal Date, enter the payroll payment date
  4. Add the entry number (optional).
  5. Enter your debit and credit entries, then click Save and close.

Check this out: Record payroll transactions manually for your guidance. This article provides scenarios of how to enter manual payroll transactions using a JE.

 

I've also attached a quick video tutorial below on how to make a JE in QBO.

 

Upon sharing this, I still recommend consulting with your accountant. He/She might have specific instructions on what account to debit and credit.

 

Let me know if there's anything else you need with entering employee salary expenses. I'd be glad to help you out.
