Hi princessashcroft,

I'd be happy to get your payroll adjusted.

You can enter your prior payroll if you haven't run/created your first payroll with QuickBooks Online. This will let you adjust the payroll details to correct the employees' record.

If you already created a payroll in QuickBooks Online, I'd suggest contacting our payroll support team to adjust the prior payroll.

To enter a prior payroll in QuickBooks Online, here's how:

  1. Click Employees.
  2. Click the employees' name to edit.
  3. In step number 7, click the Enter 2017 prior pay details button (see attached screenshot.)
  4. Follow the on-screen prompts to walk you through the rest.

To speak with one of our phone agents, here's the link:

  1. Go to:
  2. Click QuickBooks Online.
  3. Select a topic [Payroll].
  4. Click Get Phone Number.

If you have you any more questions about prior payroll, please leave a comment below.

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.
