The steps to interface the G/L data:

  1. Review the G/L (S183) report for each payroll
  2. Open QB (first time grant permission in QB to allow EvoQ access to update QB when it is open – requires admin access to QB; with each interface, QB should be in Single User mode)
  3. Open Evolution QB Export
  4. On GL Export tab and Direct Connection sub-tab, click Get Evolution Payroll List button
  5. Click current payroll in Payrolls list
  6. Account Numbers = selected; Don't parse = selected; Clear = unchecked
  7. Click Run button

The steps to interface the Check data (not applicable if Trust account with Payday, checks clear on Payday bank account – please review the posting of Employee Net Payroll subtotal, aka ‘live’ checks, and of Agency Checks on the S183 G/L report).  NOTE: Manual checks – these are included in the interface; so, the imported instance from Evolution QB Export will have to be deleted or reversed after the import IF the manual check was produced from QuickBooks, originally.  Recommendation: only the net amount should be entered when producing a manual check out of QuickBooks (offset net amount of check to ‘payroll liability account’) – applies for Trust account, too.

  1. Review the Ck Recon (S214) report for each payroll
  2. Evolution QB Export open for G/L Export, on Checks Export tab and Direct Connection sub-tab, click the current payroll in Payrolls list
  3. All Checks = selected
  4. Cash Account = bank account in QuickBooks that employee and agency checks are clearing against
  5. Liability Account = payroll liability account in QuickBooks to offset summary amount for net checks and garnishments (reference the G/L S183 report for the "Net Payroll" credit amount which matches the Ck Recon S214 report's Regular Check subtotal)
  6. Create Direct Deposit Checks, Include Payee Names and Clear = not selected (the individual amounts for the direct deposit payments are available in the Payroll Register and Direct Deposit report; to include payee names, the exact name has to be setup in QuickBooks as is setup in Evolution for each employee - reference the Ck Recon S214 report for employee names, if necessary; clear each transaction and check number when reconciling to your bank statement)
  7. Click Run button
