Your client prepares and issues payroll checks outside of QuickBooks and provides you the payroll information.
You, the accountant, customize the After-the-Fact Payroll window to match your client's payroll information.
You enter all the paychecks into QuickBooks in the After-the-Fact Payroll window.
As you enter paychecks, QuickBooks helps you adjust each one that's out of balance so that gross wages equals the sum of all the other amounts entered for that check. You can choose to have QuickBooks adjust a check automatically or you can adjust it manually.
You can use the after-the-fact payroll information you've entered in QuickBooks to prepare payroll tax forms or to calculate any outstanding payroll tax liabilities.
