To answer your question, yes, this is the standard method in QuickBooks Online for accounting reason. Journal Entry is a posting transaction, if you wish to accrue the payroll in the month of April, you can enter the journal entry dated in April so it will affect that month.

Resolution for Issue 'My accountant thinks I’m crazy, but I’d love to know if there’s a real reason NOT to create a bill for payroll other than “nobody does that”. Our bookkeeper just left us and was entering payroll in the typical journal entry way and using accrual accounts. I don’t see why I can’t create a bill for payroll including each line of debit and a negative number for credit. This lets me create the bill in the month that I need it and then make it due on the actual pay date. I’d rather not use accrual accounts as it seems like an extra step. Thoughts? Thanks!' available: Yes (Solved).
