FAQ: Do we have an integration with Intuit QuickBooks Online? Yes!



When we’re chatting with Canadian businesses across the country, one question we’re often asked is about the availability of journal entry integrations for our clients! Today, we’re taking a closer look at one of these integrations in particular: with QuickBooks Online.

Let’s back up – what’s a journal entry again?

A journal entry is a critical piece of business information, with specific entries that reflect the payroll portion of the business. Whether you’re a business owner doing it yourself or an accountant or bookkeeper taking care of it for your clients, getting the journal entry data into the general ledger each time payroll is run is not just a best practice; it’s mission critical.

Many companies use an accounting software; in fact, QuickBooks Online is a leading financial technology platform for small businesses globally. This accounting technology helps businesses maintain their financial documentation, but if businesses are manually entering payroll journal entries into that accounting software, it’s possible to inadvertently enter it incorrectly, thereby producing inaccurate data. This not only increases the business’s risk profile, but could also potentially cause bigger issues with auditing down the road.

Intuit QuickBooks logo.We offer integrations – like with QuickBooks Online – because there are many intricacies and administrative tasks when it comes to running the books for a business, and we know this has long been a source of stress for payroll professionals, business owners, and financial departments alike. Journal entry integrations, like the one between Payworks’ and QuickBooks Online, can help bring you peace of mind!
