If you need to make some changes in the paycheck like creating a duplicate paycheck, void a Payroll Check, correcting wrong information, correcting gross or net pay, or correcting incorrect work locations. You have two options to make changes:
- Deleting the paycheck
- Void the paycheck
When should you delete and when should you void the paycheck?
- Deleting the Paycheck: If the paycheck hasn’t been processed yet, then you can delete the paycheck, it will remove the transaction from payroll.
- Voiding the Paycheck: This option on the other hand would not stop direct deposit from processing, and it will not refund the funds to you as well. It will update your paycheck records and update the amount to zero.
