Record staff salary

Hi guys,

Been trying to search for this but couldn't find it in the community. How do I record my staff's salary? We can't use payroll cause we are not in USA and Canada.

  1. What accounts should I create?
  2. How about tax, Retirement fund, etc..

If someone can point me the way. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, @jason1234.

    You would make those expense transactions equal to the amount that comes out of your bank account, followed by journal transactions to cover any liabilities you incur (taxes, for example). If you use a different software for payroll, you can create categories based on how the software breaks down pay stubs.

    I do recommend you consult with an accountant on this matter, however. They'll have a much better idea of exactly how taxes on your employees' paychecks work in your country, as well as the best way to handle them in your specific situation.

    Hi @jason1234.

    That's not a bad idea! I spoke to the team behind the Help Center and they'll consider writing something up on the subject. I can't make promises or give a timeline, but it's been brought to the attention of the right folks.
