When creating a Payroll Journal Entry, it is important to make sure that the necessary Daily Sales Summaries are approved and only one Payroll JE is created to clear out the accrued payroll for the desired date range. If more than one Payroll JE is entered per date range, it can cause the GL Account Detail report to be out of balance.

When creating a Payroll JE, ensure that the 'Date' and 'Payroll End Date' fields are the same. Doing so will tie out the GL Account Detail report in a helpful way, causing less confusion around the listed date and the actual Payroll End Date.
