Can you enter a wages journal in Quick books premier desktop. ?

I have paid net wages to each employee.  but at the month end I will have a creditor for unpaid taxes and Nic to H.M.R.C.  -  do I make adjustments.  Payroll is

outsourced and not set up on desktop.  I have tried to make a journal entry without success as I have an open balance comment on journals


You can enter outsourced payroll any number of ways; it's just Accounting data, at that point.

Here are some examples:

I don't know what "opening balances" you would have. If you have Carryover values from a prior year, that isn't Payroll this year. Example: Tax Liabilities from the end of last year, to be paid this year, are not Payroll expense for this year.

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.
