Hello, camn21252. 

 

It's my pleasure to help you here in the Community. At the moment, QuickBooks is unable to make any change to the date once created.

 

However, as a workaround, we can delete the paycheck and recreate it again. You can run a Paycheck History report to view the detailed information of paychecks that you've created. I'll show you how: 

 

  1. Go to the Reports menu at the left pane, then type Paycheck History on the search bar. 
  2. Put a check mark on the paychecks you need to delete, then select Delete

 

Once finished, you can now recreate the paychecks with the correct pay periods. Here's how: 

 

  1. Click Payroll, then choose Employees
  2. Tap Run payroll. 
  3. Enter all the necessary information.
  4. Select Preview payroll, then Submit payroll
  5. Print the paychecks by clicking Print pay stubs, then Finish payroll

Hi, @nscott555.

 

Deleting and recreating the paychecks won't repay your employees unless you re-issue checks to them. If they receive their pay already, then keep the recreated paychecks for recording purposes. If not, then that's the time you can give their salary or checks to them.
