Long story. After Oct 15 payroll run I noticed balance in Vacation Pay liability account. This was the first time it had happened. I guess Payroll policy had been switched on somehow. I am new payroll and QBO so I called QBO support to ask what to do. They didn't really listen, but just jumped in and reversed the payroll, turned of vacation policy and I thought were going to rerun for me. But they didn't. Now 5 weeks later, still not fixed I still show $0.00 payroll expense for Oct 15th. I then received very brief instructions to rerun payroll using "paper cheque" so that expenses etc would all update, but there would be no actual payment made to employees. Now that I have done that I have now I have double the cheques written on my bank account - the Direct Deposit records from my first payrun, and now the "paper cheques" from my second payrun. How do I get one set of payments out of the bank register? The person giving me the very brief instructions said something about reconciling manually already reconciled transactions. Makes no sense to me.

Thank you for the link to "how to delete a paycheque". It is ironic that you suggest contacting payroll support. I have spent hours and hours with them over the last 6 weeks, and still end up with these recent emails that are very brief in their instructions - thus I am still in this pickle. I have asked for a phone call, but keep getting these emails and then wait a couple of day for a marginally helpful response. I will try contacting them again.
