QB Issue Resolution:
Currently, the International versions of the program don’t have a built-in payroll. However, you can create a journal entry to manually record your payroll transactions.
When you add salaries into QB, you can select Exempt (0% Sales) or Exempt (0% Sales) in the VAT column. See the screenshot below for your visual reference. However, I suggest consulting your accountant to ensure you use the appropriate code.
Once done, you can create a cheque to pay the liability account used in the journal entry. This way, you can either zero out the liability or lower it to the current amount.
If you’re using a third-party payroll service connected with the software, I recommend contacting directly to their Customer Support Team. From there, they can help you record the salaries with the appropriate VAT codes.
