How do i process a leaver in advanced payroll

Hello there, @mail23.


You can process a leaver in advance payroll by clicking the Terminate Employee option. I'll show you how:


  1. Choose the employee name within the pay run.
  2. Under Actions, select Terminate Employee.
  3. Enter the Termination Date and then Save.


It's a good thing that you record the employee as a leaver before running their final payroll. This way, HMRC will be notified of the leaver in the FPS and a P45 will be generated within QuickBooks. Also, make sure that the date should fall within the pay period of the next pay run.


In case you need to rollback a payroll, you can follow the steps below:


  1. Go to Pay Runs.
  2. Select the pay-period listed.
  3. Click Pay Run Actions.
  4. Tap Unlock then Delete.
  5. You can now be able to re-run the payroll, just click the New Pay Run button on the dashboard page.

I'm adding this article in case you got other questions with QBOAP: QuickBooks Online Advanced Payroll Hub. This is a page with a collection of links for articles related to QBOAP, from Getting Started to Processing Pay Runs.
