I'm a 1 person S-Corp where I am the single employee. I just transferred from QB Desktop to QB Online.

Both my Employee & Employer Simple IRA contributions are falling under my Payroll Expense Retirement Account. I'm not sure if this is correct.

As an example, each month the Company Contribution or employer contribution is $60 while the employee contribution or deduction is $1,041.66 for a total of $1.101.66. I think something is wrong with my payroll setup, what account should the employee contribution / deduction fall under? It seems it's going to Payroll Liabilities. The Total $1,101.66 transaction each month is initiated from Vanguard.

Greatly appreciate it. As a small business owner who some years makes less than $50k I love to learn. Thanks.

Let's use an example:

Say you are paid monthly in the amount of $5,000. You contribute $1,041.66 to your Simple IRA each month and your company as employer contributes $60. We ignore all other taxes and withholdings.

Your payroll entry is
DR Salaries Expense 5,000.00
CR Cash (paid to employee) (3,958.34)
CR Liability for SImple IRA (payable to Vanguard) (1,041.66)
and
DR Employee Benefits Expense - Simple IRA Contribution 60.00
CR Liability for SImple IRA (payable to Vanguard) (60.00)

and that leaves $1,101.66 total liability for when Vanguard charges for the payment
