Payroll and Compensation Info


Paychecks and YTD Information

Paychecks or employees YTD information are not converted. You must make a manual YTD Adjustment for each employee that summarizes each employees YTD Payroll information. The YTD information will be sufficient for year-end W2's and YTD information on future paychecks.

Peachtree creates paycheck information as a Payroll Entry (PRJ) General Journal Entry. This journal entry debits and credits the same expense, liability and asset accounts as Peachtree. QuickBooks does not recognize Peachtree Journal Entries as Paychecks for Employee YTD for W2s. You must make a YTD adjustment for each employee that records the total Calendar YTD Gross Wages and total amounts deducted.

Employee Payroll Setup Information

These fields are not converted (Sick Pay, Vacation, DD Info, Payrates, Taxes, Withholdings, Deductions).

Employment Info


Employment Dates

Hire and Release Dates will be converted from Peachtree.

Employment Details (Type)

These employment fields (Regular, Officer, Statutory, Owner) need to be manually entered.
