Integrate Payroll data into Intuit Quickbooks Accounting system

It is very simple!

  1. At Quickbooks, click on the “Plus Sign”

  2. Click on “Journal Entry”

  3. Let’s make the entries using 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.

Detail explanations on why are we doing this, are documented here:
