I want to show a deduction in a payroll check that does not affect wages.

I am trying to fix some payroll checks from past periods. I do not want the total gross wage affected, I just want a deduction to change the net on a few checks.

I'd be delighted to help you create a deduction item on your payroll check that only affect the net amount.

 

To do so, you'll need to create a deduction item and make sure to select net pay under Gross vs. net. Let me show you how:

 

  1. Go to Lists at the top menu bar.
  2. Select Payroll Item List.
  3. Right-click the page.
  4. Click New.
  5. Select Custom Setup under Add new payroll item.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select Deduction under Payroll item type.
  8. Click Next.
  9. Enter name for the deduction item.
  10. Click Next five times.
  11. Under Gross vs. net, select net pay.
  12. Click Next and click Finish.

After creating the item, open the paycheck created and add the deduction item under Other Payroll Items column. Click Save and Close to save the changes.

 

Let me know if you have any other payroll concerns. I'd be glad to help!
