Payroll pay period dates change.

It's possible that you've accidentally entered previous dates when you last created your paychecks, oostbakery. 

 

We can go back to the previous paychecks and change them to their correct pay period. Changes made won't affect any of your tax reports.

 

Let me show you how to correct them. Please follow the same steps when editing the rest of the paychecks.

  1. Go to the Employees menu and select Employee Center.
  2. Click on the employee’s name.
  3. On the list of Transactions, double-click on the recent paycheck created.
  4. Select the Paycheck Detail button.
  5. Modify the Pay Period.
  6. Click OK and then Save & Close.
  7. Select Yes to confirm.

 

After you’ve changed the period dates of all the affected employees, please go to the Payroll tab. Click the Net Pay amount under the Recent Payrolls section. This is to verify the changes.

 

Let's then create your recent payrolls.and check the pay period and check date first before saving them.

It's good to know that the steps provided by Catherine_B solved your concern, oostbakery.

 

It’s possible that you didn’t specify as to whom the adjustment is for. You'll have to select if it's for the company or employee.


If the adjustment is for the employee, make sure that you’ve selected the correct one. Aside from that, you’ll also need to double-check if you've filtered the correct tax type, payroll period, and tax type.

If you want this to affect the liability and expense account, then you'll need to select that option. In the Liability Adjustment window, click the Accounts Affected button, then select Affect liability and expense accounts. Then, click OK.

Afterward, make sure that your liabilities are updated You can run a payroll summary report to make sure everything looks right. I have an article here on how to run this report: Create a payroll summary report.

 

I'm just here if you need more help. Thank you.
