Can I add payroll tax (PIT) in quickbooks online (Vietnam)? And how can I do that?


Hello there, thubui183,

The International version of QuickBooks Online doesn't have a built-in payroll. However, you can create a journal entry to manually record your payroll transactions as a workaround.

Just a heads up, before you perform the suggested steps, I'd recommend consulting with your accountant to help and guide how to record these transactions and can provide more expert advice in dealing with this concern.

Here are the steps:

  1. Go to the Plus icon, then select Journal Entry.
  2. Select the paycheque(s) date under Date.
  3. Input the Journal no.
  4. Debit the expense account used to track gross wages and employer contribution.
  5. Credit Bank account payroll is deducted from. 
  6. Click Make Recurring.
  7. Enter the Template Name and set Type to Unscheduled.
  8. Click Save Template.
  9. Select Save.

Once done, create a cheque to pay the liability (account used in the journal entry). This way, you can either zero out or lower the liability to the current amount. 

Here's an article that provides the detailed steps on recording your payroll transactions: Recording Payroll Transactions Manually.

If you wish to reconcile your accounts, kindly refer to this article to guide you through the steps:  How to Reconcile Accounts.

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.
