For an ad-hoc pay run that needs to be entered to fix an employee missing from 3 pay runs ago, do we enter the pay run as the week that was incorrect or the current week?

An employee was left off a pay run and there have been 3 lodged since. Do we add the ad-hoc pay run with the original pay run dates or the current week? Do we also need to lodge an update event or is the ad-hoc pay run sufficient?

Hi BelindaD-Torre-A, 

 

Yes that is correct, we recommend that you create the ad-hoc pay run for the employee for the week that they were meant to be included in the pay run.  This will ensure that the earnings are correctly reported for that employee. 

 

Once you have created the ad-hoc pay run and finalised the pay run you can lodge this to the ATO.

 

You can then lodge the Update Event as my colleague mentioned as this ensures that the correct Year to Date Earnings are being reflected for the employee.

 

Please let us know if we can assist further.

 

Thank you,

 

Kay.

Hi Intuit Zac, I didn't think it was possible to add any additional payroll data that hasn't already been entered into QB via an update event. Doesn't the missed pay still need to be entered into QB somehow? The employee was completely left out of a pay run yet he was paid for that week. We need to record the wages for that week (being 25/2/21 on a weekly pay cycle) for this employee. The process of how to do this is what I need help with. Do we create an ad-hoc pay run to include the missed employee's wages for that week and then submit that ad-hoc pay run? If this is the case, do we create this ad-hoc pay run for this week or the week in which he was left out of the pay run, ie 25/2/21? The payroll clearing account is currently out of balance by the missed employee's net wages for the week in question.
