How to prepare a payroll allocation journal entry

Journal entry for both entities to allocate payroll from S Corp or SP

Didn't find your answer?

General accounting question. You have an S Corp and SP owned by the same person. If the owner would like to allocate $100k of payroll (admin who work for both entities) from the S Corp to the SP, what would that journal entry look like so that payroll wage reports and taxes don't get messed up.

For tax, because they are both flow through entities, total tax liability won't matter at the end of the day but I would assume since tax is cash basis, the journal entry would have to be followed up by an actual transfer of cash from the SP to the S Corp so that the SP can deduct the $100k of additional payroll expenses.
