Quick books automatically approved my payroll before I could review. How do I go back and make changes

I'm here to guide you through the steps on how to make changes to the recent payroll, windlandfields.

 

You can generally edit an approved paycheck from your most recent payroll. The process depends on whether or not you have already delivered the paycheck to the employee.

 

For manual paychecks:

 

  1. Go to the Payroll menu, then select Employees.
  2. Find the paycheck to view, then click Edit.
  3. Make the necessary changes.
  4. Select Save and close.
     

For direct deposit (DD) paychecks:

 

  1. When you select Edit in a processed direct deposit paycheck, a popup will confirm that the net pay will stay the same. Any changes necessary are done via payroll correction.
  2. You can change the same editable items as for an approved manual paycheck.
  3. The net pay will be locked to its original amount.
  4. Once you change an item, a payroll correction is automatically added. It will be resolved on the employee's next paycheck(s).
     

If you don't save the changes before 4:55 PM PT for DD checks, a popup will confirm that no changes were saved. And the original paycheck will be processed. Also, you can still delete the paycheck until 5:00 PM PT.

 

If you're unable to perform the process, I recommend contacting our QuickBooks Payroll Team. They're the ones who'll make the changes in a secure environment.

 

Here's an article for future reference:
