Adjust a payroll

What to expect when adjusting payrolls

There are two ways to adjust payrolls: running an off-cycle payroll, or reversing the payroll altogether. 

If anyone on your team was underpaid, run an off-cycle payroll to make up the difference (recommended), or you can reverse the payroll.

Reversing payrolls

If the check date is within 5 days from the time you reverse it, we can retract the funds from the employees’ bank accounts. If it’s after 5 days, you’ll need to recover the money externally, but we can reverse the amounts for tax and reporting purposes. 

Make sure to check your state’s overpayment laws to stay compliant before you reverse the payroll. 

Note: If you're using an accounting integration you may need to manually reconcile any reversed entries.
