I do payroll weekly; we were closed last week. How do I delete the "overdue payroll" reminder/error in payroll and have payroll dates move forward to next week's dates?

I have tried resetting the scheduled payperiod end dates and paycheck due date, but that didn't work; it wouldn't reset.

Hello lynn,

To skip a payroll schedule, you'll need to manually edit the dates to the next period:

  1. Select your Payroll Schedule under the Create Paychecks table.
  2. Click the Payroll Schedule button at the bottom of the table.
  3. Choose Edit Schedule. This will open the Edit Payroll Schedule window.
  4. Change the dates for What is the pay period end date and what date should appear on paychecks for this pay period.
  5. Click OK.

I've attached a screenshot for your reference.

After this, you should be able to see the correct dates under the Pay Period and Check Date column.

Please let me know if you're experiencing something else. Thanks!

What if you want to only skip 1 week of  payroll for one person in a two week pay period?

Thanks for joining us, ReboundPT.

 

You can definitely unselect a specific employee when running a scheduled payroll in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).

 

Let me show you how:

  1. Go to Employees and Payroll Center.
  2. In the Pay Employees tab, highlight the payroll schedule and click on Start Scheduled Payroll.
  3. Uncheck the employee's name and continue to run payroll.

For visual reference, I've attached some screenshots below.1.PNG
