I accidently had my payroll checks post to the wrong account how can I change them to the correct account?

Let's correct the bank account of your paychecks, cardanaircraft.

 

To do this, we'll need to delete the paycheck of each employee, starting from the latest one. Then, we'll change the bank account in your payroll preference settings. After that, you can recreate the paychecks, starting from the oldest one. We can do this per employee.

 

Please be sure to print or save the paystubs as PDFs before deleting them. 

 

To change the bank account in the payroll Preferences section:

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Choose Payroll Settings.
  3. In the Preferences section, select Accounting.
  4. Choose the right bank account in the Bank Account field.
  5. Scroll down to the bottom and click OK.

Now, you can recreate the paychecks of the employees using the information on the paystubs.

 

Please don't hesitate to go back to this thread if you need more help with your employees' paychecks. Have a good one!

I have two employees who received a raise on their last two pay periods, but had a different rate of pay for the rest of the year. Will I have to change their rate of pay before I recreate the paychecks?

Good Afternoon, @Shelby302

 

I hope your day is going well so far. Yes, you'll need to change the pay rate before recreating the paychecks. Don't worry. It's super easy. 

 

Here's how: 

 

  1. Go to the Payroll or Workers tab. 
  2. Select the Employees section. 
  3. Locate and click on the employee you'd like to update their pay rate. 
  4. Press the Edit (Pencil) icon in the top-right corner of the How much do you pay [employee name]? portion. 
  5. Make any necessary changes. 
  6. Tap Done

 

That's it! Here's an additional link that can provide insight into editing an employee in Online Payroll

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with. Have a great day!
