Can delete a processed paycheck?

Hello, Mr5.


Let me share some info about your situation. 


Depending on your processing time, and the payroll service you are subscribed, you can either delete or void a paycheck. 


  • Delete a paycheck: This removes the transaction from your payroll. You can do this if the paycheck hasn't been processed yet.
  • Void a paycheck: This changes your paycheck records and updates the paycheck dollar amount to zero. You may need to make adjustments to balance your books. This does not stop a direct deposit from processing and does not return funds to you.

Here's how:


  1. Go to Payroll Employees.
  2. Click on the Paycheck list link.
  3. Select the check(s) you'd like to delete or void.
  4. Click Delete or Void the paycheck:
  5. Put a check mark on the I understand that this action cannot be undone box.
  6. Select Delete Paycheck or Void Paycheck to confirm action.

For reference, you can read this article: Delete or void employee paychecks.
