How do I edit payroll

Glad to see you here in the Community, @qstormwh.


If you submit the payroll a business day before the check date, we can consider deleting and recreate the paycheck in QuickBooks Online (QBO).


Here's how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu.
  2. Click the Paycheck list link to open the submitted paycheck.
  3. From the Paycheck list page, click the amount under the Net Pay column.
  4. Click the Delete button from the Paycheck page.
  5. Place a check-mark in the I understand that this action cannot be undone checkbox, then click Delete Paycheck.

Once done, you can now recreate the payroll with the correct information.


I've also added this article about changing and editing paycheck in QBO: Change or edit paycheck date.


Don't hesitate to drop a comment below if you have other questions. I'm always happy to help. Take care!
