2021 payroll, biweekly, will have 27 pay periods instead of 26.
53 Fridays in 2021.
Does the Payroll system automatically adjust the Salary payment for the 27th period? That would reduce the employee's payroll that they are used to receiving each period, in order to cover the cost of the 27th period.
How do most companies handle the 27th pay period?
1) Reduce employee's pay each period, to cover the 27th period?
2) Cover the additional cost of the extra pay period, no reduction of pay for the employees' salaries?
Hello @Lynn Rose,
Let me help share information about how QuickBooks handle your employees' paycheck with 27 pay periods.
To start with, QuickBooks will automatically adjust your employees' paycheck by dividing the total salary among the 27 pay periods for next year, rather than 26. As a result, they will receive a smaller amount of wages in each paycheck per pay period.
That being said, here's an article you can read to learn more about your employees' pay schedule: How to set up and assign pay schedules to pay your employees?
Additionally, I've also included this helpful reference for a compilation of articles you can use for the year-end preparations: How you can prepare for the 2020 tax season?

Has anyone had any luck getting support to fix this issue? I chatted twice with support for a couple hours before the last payroll and was told they would fix it and they didn't. It's time to run payroll again and it is STILL NOT fixed. I've been on a call with support for an hour now, and getting absolutely no where!!! This is so aggravating - especially since the system should have automatically done this with out me having to spend hours trying to get it fixed!
