Why the CPP and tax is not listed under Current liabilities in the Balance Sheet?




Thank you for posting here in the Community, stanw007.

Let me help you with checking as to why CPP and tax is not listed under Current liabilities in the Balance Sheet.

You’ll have to check under the Payroll Item List since CPP is a part of deduction item for employee’s cheques.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to the List menu.
  2. Select Payroll Item List.
  3. Click the Payroll Item.

Make sure that you select a liability account on the Enter Account for tracking. To assist you further, I suggest reaching out our Phone support. Here's how to get their phone number:

  1. Go to https://help.quickbooks.intuit.com/en_CA/contact/.
  2. Select QuickBooks Desktop
  3. Click Contact QuickBooks Desktop support. 

They're available Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM (ET). 

That should get you in the right direction. However if you mean something else or if you need further assistance about your account, let me know by leaving a comment below. I'm around if you need help. Take care and enjoy the weekend.

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.
