How do we clear the Overdue status without issuing duplicate paychecks?

While processing our regular payroll schedule, QB had an error and closed. When logged back in, we direct deposited all of the paychecks - however, the Create Paychecks status did not update and the Payroll Schedule status for the Pay Period still shows as Overdue.  How do we clear the Overdue status without issuing duplicate paychecks, or do we need to issue duplicates and then void them?

Hi there billclay,

I'd be more than happy to help you with this.

You can change the status of your payroll schedule without creating duplicate paychecks in QuickBooks.

Here's how:

  1. Click the Employees menu at the top.
  2. Choose Payroll Center.
  3. In the Pay Employees tab, highlight the specific payroll schedule.
  4. Click the drop-down arrow in the Payroll Schedules and choose Edit Schedule.
  5. Update the dates of your pay period end date and paycheck date to the future date.
  6. Click OK once you're done.

I've provided a screenshot for you.

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this concern.

Here's a helpful video about setting up payroll schedules to give you some additional information: Set up and manage payroll schedules.

 

You can also edit the pay period dates on paychecks that you've created incorrectly. Refer to this article for more details: Incorrect pay period dates in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll.

 

Please let me know in the comments down below if there's anything else that I can help you with. Have a great day!
