Do I add QB desktop paycheques to QB online? I am doing an ROE and it only has the cheques I have done since I started online.

will it affect my bank account?


Hi rpmjen,

Thanks for checking in with us today. 

You can bring in your prior paycheques through either of the options below.

You can start your payroll over from the beginning of the financial year and manually enter the data from QBDT to QBO. This way, you’ll have a list of all your paycheques and keep a record of these in QBO.

You can also enter the prior data through year-to-date (YTD) adjustments in QBO. The YTD information is available on the employee’s most recent pay stub from QBDT. You’ll need to enter these as normal expenses in QBO. Enter the dates as the dates on the YTD information and account the transactions under Payroll Expenses.

Refer to this article to guide you with payroll: Payroll Setup (Canada only).

Feel free to drop a comment below if you’ve got further questions.

Have an awesome day!

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.
