Q - If I need to void a payroll check that has already been posted to GL, how do I go about doing this?
A - Voiding a payroll check is not as easy as voiding an AP check. You'll need to make a negative (reversing) transaction to reverse all related amounts back.
- Go to Payroll -> Processing -> Manual Transaction Processing.
- Choose to add a manual transaction and enter the same amount from the original check, but use the “Negative” value including the employer deduction portion.
- Make sure the negative amount matches the “Net Pay” (negative amount) from the original check amount. Please see example below.
- Now post the manual payroll transaction to reverse the previously posted payroll check value.
