How do we reverse 401k account set up for employer and employee contributions in QB to make it void?

401k account was setup in QB in 2018 to make employer and employee contributions. The employee share was deducted from the paycheck while processing direct deposit of the payroll and company contributions were also being shown. Quarterly payroll returns were also filed showing employee deductions. However, the client never opened 401k account with the bank. How do we reverse this in Qb desktop and in quarterly payroll returns?


Does your Plan dictate that the deposit has to be made by Dec 31? That just means you are Late; you don't Reverse what you did; you get on with it.

And there is a different understanding of Timely Deposit, for employee amounts vs employer amounts.

Do you have a CPA to work with? You seem to be ready to make this Worse than it is.

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.
