I need to ender past paychecks into quickbooks online. is it possible?


Thanks for posting in the Intuit Community, landexcavation,

Let me get the help you need in entering past payroll in QuickBooks Online.

Once you’ve signed up with QuickBooks Online Payroll and set up an account, you’ll be prompted with a question if you have paid any W-2 employees in the current year.

We ask this because if you are switching from a previous payroll solution or have paid employees in the current year, we’ll need to collect that information from you. When we calculate your payroll taxes, we’re required by the government to factor in all the payroll that you ran earlier in the year.

To successfully set up with prior payroll, there are 4 stages that you’ll need to complete, these are:

  1. Get started with payroll
  2. Employees
  3. Taxes
  4. Prior payrolls

For detailed steps, I’m attaching a helpful article that you can check on: Prior payroll overview in Online Payroll.

As always, you can contact our QuickBooks Support team if you need assistance with the steps. They'll be able to pull up your account in a secure environment and help you navigate using one of their tools.

Here’s how to reach them:

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.
