Forgot to process payroll on Feb 5

Hi there, cfrllcfl.

 

If you have missed payroll, you can create unscheduled checks for the current pay period all the way back to pay periods dating 6 months ago. You're unable to create a check with a date in the past. The only check dates that are available are dates that fall after your last check date and before your next payday. We do this to keep your payroll taxes error-free.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Payroll menu and select Employees.
  2. Click Run payroll.
  3. Find the employee you want to pay. Then, select Create another check.
  4. Enter employee compensation, including any salary adjustments, vacation or sick hours, and other pay types.
  5. Confirm the pay period and check date.
  6. Choose Preview Payroll, and select Submit payroll.
  7. If creating a paper check, hand write or print the check and give it to the employee by the check date.
  8. Hit Finish payroll.

 

For additional information, you can click this article: Create Unscheduled Payroll Check.

 

For future reference, you can run payroll reports to view useful information bout your business and employees: Run Payroll Reports

 

Let me know if you have additional questions or clarifications. I'm always here to help whenever you need one. Have a nice day!

This is my complete question and not sure QB Online is showing it to the Community:  Forgot to process payroll on Feb 5 & want to process it now & then want to process it on Feb 19 which I will then be back on track. How do I accomplish this in QBO?
