Hi. My bookkeeper has posted payroll checks to the wrong checking account. causing two accounts out of balance. Do I need to delete the payroll check and re-enter it?
Welcome to the thread, GrayFarm.
The bank account where the payroll posted depends on your payroll setting. To ensure it will take out to the correct account, update payroll information.
Click the Gear icon at the top.
Choose Payroll Settings.
Hit the Preferences link at the top.
Select Accounting Preferences.
Pick the Customize button to edit.
Go to the Bank Account section and choose the correct account in the drop-down menu.
Once done, click OK.
From there, once you've process payroll, it will be taken out based on the account selected. Thus, when you void and recreate the paychecks, it won't pay the employee again.
As for the option to move paychecks to another bank, it isn't available right now. For the meantime, what you can do is to enter payroll checks manually as journal entries so you can use them when reconciling an account.
To make sure the amounts are exact, run a payroll report like Payroll Summary, Payroll Summary by Employee, or Payroll Details for reference.
