I was said the come back finish later even before entering information. Then came back and did payroll for that period. Now I see the old one still asking to finish!

I was about to do my payroll, said come back and finish later. Then came back and did payroll, everything went fine and everyone was paid. But now I was about to create paycheck for next payroll. But I have this on payroll stating that I didn't finish that payroll and need to do that first before doing next one. I don't see any thing/option to void that one, so that I can go forward and do current payroll!!


Hello ckgoli,

It could be that you're using Scheduled Payroll when you first did it. If that's the case, you'll want to edit the pay period date from the setting.

Here's how:

  1. In the Payroll Center, click the Payroll Schedules drop-down.
  2. Choose Edit Schedule.
  3. Change the date for What is the pay period end date, and the What date should appear on paychecks for this pay period.
  4. Click OK.

Please see the screenshots below.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
