I missed entering hours for an employee when I issued paycheques for last week. How do I process a correction?

I tried to enter the time on the correct day, but since I already issued payroll it gives me a message that it will not impact my payroll for that period.

Answer

Hi there, julieoberlecma.

You can create a separate pay cheque for that employee and enter the unapplied working hours. You can also apply the missed hours on the next pay period and enter it on a separate earnings item.

I found a helpful article for more details about creating pay cheques: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1763113.

You can always reply to this post if you have more questions. I'd be glad to help.

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.
