How can I match payroll check split into two accounts?

One of my employees has their direct deposit split into two accounts.  How do I get Quickbooks to match the the transaction?  It comes through as two separate amounts and Quickbooks only looks for the singe paycheck amount.

Hi proverb32,

I understand that you want to match your payroll check with split transactions but QuickBooks Online can't recognize multiple transactions downloaded from Online Banking to match up with one transaction in the register. In this case, you need to manually reconcile the transaction on your QuickBooks Online by following these steps:

  1. Review the downloaded transactions and compare them with your Bank Register. Verify that the sum of the 2 downloaded transactions amounts add up with the direct deposit transaction in your Bank Register.
  2. Once verified, mark the direct deposit in your Bank Register as Cleared. Click inside the Reconcile Status box until C appears.
  3. Delete the items under Transactions to Review that added up to the now Cleared, Bank Register item. These have to be manually deleted as they will never match with any of the Bank Register items.

That'll do it! Please let me know if you have any further questions. I'm always happy to help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
