Record past payrolls

There may be times when you need to run a payroll with a check date in the past to appropriately report wages. If you've forgotten to report wages for an employee that was already paid, follow the below steps:

  1. Process an off-cycle payroll with the payment amount.
  2. Click the Check Date, and select the date in the past.
    • If the check date was before the first day of the current quarter please contact support@gusto.com so we can assist.
  3. Update the Payment Method to Check.
  4. Finish running the correction payroll.

Please be cautious when selecting a check date too far in the past. You may receive a late payment penalty by the federal or state agencies if you've selected a check date that occurs outside of your tax deposit frequency.
