Workarounds to pay salary to employees in QBO

Hi All,

 

With the reference of below articles:

  1. https://quickbooks.intuit.com/learn-support/global/manage-your-account/recording-payroll-transaction...
  2. https://quickbooks.intuit.com/learn-support/en-us/journal-entries/manually-enter-payroll-paychecks-i...

May we make a Cheque Expense instead of creating direct JE?

In this way, user may get two benefits:

 

  1. Journal Entries passed (at back end) in this way will be identical to JE made directly
  2. But here user may explicitly mention the employees name in 'Payee' instead of mentioning it in Memo of JE form.

I will appreciate the feedback on this idea...

 

Regards,

Abdul Rehman.

Hello Abdul Rehman,

 

Yes, you can create a cheque to pay your employees. Please take note that it only affects your bank and expense accounts. You still have to enter a journal entry for the liabilities.

 

In adding the journal entry, please consult with your accountant on the accounts that should be included.

 

If you have more questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Have a great day!
