Hi there, yhayslett.

 

Good to see you here in QuickBooks Community. I'm here to help and guide you on how to correct the payroll you've processed. 

 

In this case, if this is a regular paycheck you can manually delete and recreate a new one. For direct deposit the scheduled to offload is exactly 5 PM Pacific Time two days prior to the paycheck date. If you need to make any changes to direct deposit paycheck, you must void the payment you already sent before the offload schedule.

 

To void a direct deposit paycheck, here's how: 

 

  1. At the top menu bar, click the Employees.
  2. Select Edit/Void Paychecks.
  3. Change both Show paycheck dates from/through dates to the date of the check.
  4. Select the paycheck you want to void.
  5. Click Void.
  6. In the pop-up box, enter Yes and click Void
  7. Select the checkbox saying you agree to the terms and conditions of voiding the paychecks.
  8. Repeat the previous steps to include all checks that need to be voided.
  9. Once the check have been voided, close the Edit/Void Paycheck window.
  10. Click Employees at the top menu bar, and select Send payroll Data
  11. Click Send

Just to make sure that the paycheck has been voided, you can check your bank register that is used to pay employees.
