If the amount you are reimbursing has GST, then don't do it through payroll or you won't be able to claim the GST.  It really is easier to do the reimbursement separately to show it correctly in the  ledger otherwise you then need to do a journal to move it to the correct expense line.

Thankyou Carol I have just taken over and reimbursements were done with payroll which is opposite to what I did so I need to also enter the invoice and show it as paid how would you align with the reimbursement

Depends how the deduction has been set up from payroll, if I had to do this, I would set up  the deduction to go to the Contra (Bank) Account, then pay the invoice from  the Contra account, or a Suspense Account could be used.
