How do you retro payroll?

Welcome to the Community, @autoaffari16. You can run an unscheduled payroll check to retro pay your employees for work performed during a previous pay period. Here's how: 


  1. Go to the Workers tab, then choose Employees.
  2. Select Run Payroll.
  3. Locate the employee you need to pay, then click on Create another check.
  4. Enter employee compensation, including any salary adjustments, vacation, or sick hours, and other pay types.
  5. Verify the pay period and check date.
  6. Go to Preview Payroll and Submit payroll.
  7. When you're ready, click Finish Payroll.


For more information, refer to this help article: Enter unpaid hours for salaried employees.


I also have here another article that can help let your employees view and print their paystubs. Read through this topic: Invite employees to see pay stubs and W-2s online


Please leave a comment below if you have any other issues or concerns. I want to make sure everything is taken care of for you.
