Determining when year-to-date summaries affect your payroll data

You must specify three dates when you enter your year-to-date summaries in QuickBooks:

  • The date your payroll liability and expense accounts are affected; that is, when QuickBooks increases all liability accounts and affects each expense account associated with payroll items.

  • The date your payroll bank accounts are affected; that is when QuickBooks starts recording net paycheck amounts in your payroll bank account.

  • The check date of the first paycheck you create using QuickBooks payroll.

These dates can be the same or different, depending on your payroll situation. See the following example of situations where you might consider different dates.
