Clear cash invoice with staff wage deduction

I received a cash payment for an invoice. A member of staff received this and kept the cash. I deducted this via their salary / wages for that month. All is OK on the payroll side.

I have the salary payment on my bank account, which was tagged as a salary. However the invoice is sat unpaid.

How best am I to account for this in Quick File - a journal? I don’t do many journals, so don’t want to make any errors.


You don’t necessarily need a journal - if you mark the invoice as paid into the “petty cash” bank account and then manually enter a “money out” transaction on the same account and tag that as wages in the same way you would for your normal payroll payments.
