Re: How to pay catchup from changing payroll frequency from biweekly to semimonthly

Dropping in to provide some insights, alex-pearce.


Yes, you'll want to create deduction item to reduce the amount. 


Here's how to do it:

  1. In the employee set up, click the Add a new deduction link under Does [employee name] have any deductions? (Examples: retirement, health care).
  2. Choose Deduction/contribution under Deduction/contribution or garnishment drop-down.
  3. Under Deduction/contribution drop-down, choose New deduction/contribution.
  4. Under Deduction/contribution type, choose Other deductions.
  5. Under Type, choose Other after tax deductions.
  6. Enter a Description or name of the deduction item, and then enter the amount per pay period.
  7. Click OK.
