If you’ve set up a payroll schedule, you can create a scheduled payroll or an unscheduled payroll
- Scheduled payroll: paychecks you give your employees regularly. You can also add bonuses or other pay to these paychecks.
- Unscheduled payroll: you may need to pay your employees bonuses, commissions, a final paycheck, or report fringe benefits outside your regular payroll schedule.
