Bank drafts for payroll and paycheck dates are in different months which causes an issue with reconciliation
Prior to switching to a new bank, I would set a payroll ACH on the Wednesday prior to the Friday pay date for my employees. The bank would draft my account and pay my employees on the same date (that Friday). The new bank drafts my account on the Wednesday I set the payroll up, not the day my employee’s are paid, essentially holding my money for 2 days. I didn’t think much of it until I tried to reconcile. There was a 10/2/20 pay date that was setup on 9/30. The bank drafted my account on 9/30, but the paychecks don’t show in my register until the actual pay date of 10/2. I can’t get the reconciliation to work out because the draft is in September and the pay date is in October…. Any ideas on how to correct this?
