It's nice to see you in the Community, @un1.

 

I appreciate you providing the exact changes you need for payroll. You can choose to create an unscheduled payroll if you want another pay date for your checks. You can do this if the dates fall after your last check date and before your next payday.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Sign in to your QuickBooks account.
  2. Go to the Workers tab and select Employees.
  3. Click Run Payroll.
  4. Locate the employee you want to pay and select Create another check.
  5. Enter employee compensation and other details and confirm the pay period and check date.
  6. Select Preview Payroll, then click Submit Payroll.
  7. For a paper check, you can handwrite or print the check and give it to the employee by the check date.
  8. Select Finish payroll.

The process may also depend on the situation. To learn more about what can and can't be changed on an employee's paycheck, please check the following articles below.

Should you have any questions or need anything, I'm just a few clicks away. Take care and have a great weekend!
