Pay (Salary) transactions in Wave Accounting

I haven't purchased the Wave Payroll module as I'm the only employee of my corporation.
Can someone guide me how to create transactions for paying myself the monthly salary?

I'd assume it needs a couple of separate entries for:
- Gross pay
- Employee CPP deduction
- Employee Tax deduction
- Employer's payment of Employee CPP contribution (Previously deducted) to CRA
- Employer's payment of Employee's tax (previously deducted) to CRA
- Employer's payment of Employer's CPP contribution to CRA
- Finally, a net pay payment to the employee from the Business Account.

If you're doing Canadian payroll, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has Payroll Deductions Online Calculator (PDOC). It's FREE.
