● On the screen you will be presented with three options; Tax Payments, Non tax Payments and Paychecks.
● Against Paychecks click edit.
● There is a comprehensive guide that is stored in the software by Intuit. You can either check it or follow the steps given below to start adding these transactions that you performed through paychecks.
○ Add Columns and rows as per your requirements

● After entering all the data you can save it. Save the data and close the window.
At this point you can see all the data that you collected from Ceridian Payroll software. After doing this, you can sync all the data with QB accounting software and start making reports by implementing templates for better analysis of all the data.
