Can I change the date on a payroll check that has been processed?

Glad to see you here, HMB1.

 

I can share some information about how paychecks work in QuickBooks.

 

Editing the date of a processed direct deposit check is done by our Payroll Correction Team. That being said, you'll want to give us a quick call so we can pull up your account in a safe environment and modify the paycheck for you. Here's how to connect with us:

 

  1. Go to the Help icon.
  2. Select Talk to a human from the Here are some ways to get started section.
  3. Enter "Talk to a human" again in the search bar.
  4. Choose I still need a human, then click Get help from a human or Contact us.
  5. Select Get a callback or Send a message to start a conversation.

If you need to edit the approved manual check, you'll have to delete and recreate it. I'll show you how:
 

  1. Select Payroll from the sidebar menu, go to the Employees tab.
  2. Click the name of the appropriate employee's name, then choose Paycheck list.
  3. Tick the checkbox next to the pay date, then select the Delete button.
  4. Choose Yes when you see the confirmation message.
  5. Go back to the employee list and recreate the paycheck.

In addition, here's an article that you can read to help manage and track your employee and payroll expenses in QuickBooks: Run payroll reports.

Hi HMB1,

 

Hope you’re doing great. I wanted to see how everything is going about the issue in your payroll checks. Were you able to connect with our Payroll Correction Team yesterday? Do you need any additional help or clarification? If you do, just let me know. I’d be happy to help you at anytime.

 

Looking forward to your reply. Have a pleasant day ahead!
