SUI wages from prior business owner situation

I bought a business in June and run payroll myself in Quickbooks (I'm based in Michigan). Under Michigan rules, the business will continue to operate under the same UIA account as the previous owner. This is good for me since the previous owner had already hit the $9000 cap on four out of the 10 of my employees.

Here's my problem. I need to have each employee's year to date wages added to their employee objects in Quickbooks for QB to calculate the SUI correctly. If I do that, then the employee's pay stubs are going to be incorrect since I haven't paid them those wages. I can think of other areas that might be impacted as well, maybe W2's at the end of the year.

Is there a way I can get around this? Is it possible to enter the SUI manually or adjust it after it's been calculated?

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.
