QuickBooks Pro 2019 Set Up Manual Payroll

If you don’t use the QuickBooks payroll module, you can enter payroll payments using the following workaround. You’d have to manually measure the sums for payroll components and then join them as a journal entry. Here is a sample list of accounts that must be generated in QuickBooks before you can enter a payroll payment:

 

Account Name

Type

Basic Pay

Expense

Dearness Allowance

Expense

HRA

Expense

Medical Allowance

Expense

Conveyance

Expense

Provident Fund

Current Liabilities

TDS Payable

Current Liabilities

Payroll Liabilities

Current Liabilities

As a result, payroll deductions and refunds will be added as Current Liabilities and Expenses, respectively.
