It is very simple!
At Quickbooks, click on the “Plus Sign”
Click on “Journal Entry”
Let’s make the entries using Kakitangan.com Payroll Summary example below:
Step 1 - Journal Entry for Employee’s Portion
Step 2: Journal Entry for Employer’s Portion
Step 3: Journal Entry for all payments: Salary, Deductions and Contributions (Employee + Employer’s Portion)
After all payments are made, check your balance sheet.
Go to Reports > All Reports > Accountant Reports > Balance Sheet
All controls accounts balances will be 0 if payment is made in full.
