Salaries expenses under certain project cost

Hi Experts,
How can I make salaries expenses (for some employees) under certain project cost?
Best regards,


As per the standards, expense for the total Salary Paid is booked via single Journal Entry.

Dr. Salary Expense … XXXX
Cr. Bank/Cash account… XXXX

If you want to bifurcate salary expense based on Project, then you should do the following.

  1. Create Project
  2. Create New Journal Entry as below:

Dr. Salary Expense … XXXX …Project XYZ
Cr. Salary Expense … XXXX

Dr. Salary Expense … XXXX …Project ABC
Cr. Salary Expense … XXXX

On the same lines, you can also use Cost Center, and create separate Journal Entry to distribute Salary Expense into various Cost Centers.

Hope this helps.

Dear umair
In this case I can not book salary using payroll process.
I have to sum amounts of salary slips related to certain project then book the total ammount using journal entry.
Please is this right?
