QB Issue Resolution:

Answer 1: For Tax purposes, the only date that matters is the payment date. Whether you’d want to record it differently for accrual accounting would be up to you and your accountant.

Answer 2:

I’ll be happy to explain what date becomes relevant for payroll.

 

The date you are seeing after it has been imported is the date the payroll was ran for.

 

For your example, If you run payroll on 12/31 and the DD is set for 01/02. When you import the payroll, the date would show 01/02. It doesn’t matter if you’re cash or accrual accounting.
