if you plan on taking a fixed salary each month, it is recommended that you add a recurring entry to ensure this is not missed.
Navigate to 'Accounting > Journals'
Click the 'Portal Options' button
In the 'Options' section select ' + Create a new Recurring Journal'.
Enter the payment details
This will now show on the dashboard, when a payment is required (the last day of each month).
Please speak with your accountant and they will assist with this, or will update at the end of each year.
