Re: change date of payroll run

Hey there, ErmaG.

Thanks for turning to the Community about your direct deposit concern. I can help ensure the submitted direct deposit has the correct information.

To reverse the transactions, void them on your end and recreate the paychecks with the correct pay period. Please know the process can be done as long you haven’t reached the cutoff time of 5:00 PM PST.

The process differs depending on the type of payroll version you’re using. For the online version, follow the instructions below to remove the transactions.


  1. From the left panel, choose Workers and select Employees.
  2. In the upper right hand, click on the Paycheck List link.
  3. On the Paycheck List page, click on the Funnel icon and choose the correct pay period.
  4. Mark the box for the check to be deleted.
  5. At the bottom of the page, click on the Delete option.
  6. Check the box for I understand that this action cannot be undone.
  7. Click on the Delete Paycheck tab.

You’ll have to perform the same process to delete the direct deposit checks. Now, create the transactions and submit them. 


Here's how: 


  1. From the left panel, choose Workers and select Employees.
  2. Click on the Run payroll tab in the upper right hand.
  3. Choose the correct pay schedule, then click on Continue.
  4. On the Run Payroll page, select the correct period by clicking on the Pay period drop-down.
  5. Mark the employees’ name and enter the correct information.
  6. Select Preview Payroll located in the lower right hand corner.
  7. Once done, click on the Submit button to send the direct deposit.

I’m also adding a link with answers to frequently asked questions about Direct Deposit in Online Payroll.
