How it works

Create and file an unscheduled payrun to

  • Process one off out of cycle payruns

  • Adjust a pay period already processed to correct an employee's wages, if they were overpaid or underpaid

  • Process a negative payrun to incude negative wages, taxes and netpay to reverse incorrect wages and taxes

Adjust the pay period using a unscheduled payrun

You need to create a new pay run if the employee that you want to adjust final pay values for is not included in the latest filed pay run.

Step 1: Create a new pay run by selecting the Pay schedule as Unscheduled and payment date to select the date you'll pay your employees. This date determines the period the pay run is reported in

Note: Create a new pay run with any schedule and end date but with a payment date same as for the pay run that you want to adjust.

Step 2: Only include employees whose pay values need to be updated

Step 3: Edit pay values accordingly to adjust

  • You can enter negative (-ve) values if earlier reported values are more than what is supposed to be reported.

  • You can enter (+ve) values if earlier reported values are less than what was supposed to be reported.

Step 4: Publish the pay run

Step 5: Resend payslips for the latest filed pay run of the employee

  • Select the pay run which is the latest for the employee paid in the current financial year

  • Select "Send Payslips" from the pay run options.

Step 6: Go to "Reports" > "Finalisations" and "Finalise" to select and finalise pay values of the employees whose pay values have been updated

Note: The status of the employees will still show as "Finalised" as it was already finalised earlier. You still can select the employee and "Finalise" again to send the updated pay values as final for the employee.
