Edit scheduled payroll dates and pay frequency
Editing the paycheck dates or frequency on a payroll schedule.
Using the Payroll Schedule List, all employees with this pay schedule can be quickly edited at once and placed on the same schedule.
The paycheck dates or frequency will be adjusted.
To edit your payroll schedule:
For QuickBooks Pro and Premier: In the Payroll Center, under Pay Employees, select Related Payroll Activities, and then select Add or Edit Payroll Schedules.
- Under Money Out, mouse-over Payroll then click Go to the Payroll Center.
- Next to Pay Employees, select Related Payroll Activities, and then select Add or Edit Payroll Schedules.
Select a schedule from the Payroll Schedule List.
Click the Payroll Schedule button, and select Edit Payroll Schedule.
In the Edit Payroll Schedule window, edit the name of your payroll schedule.
Edit how often you will pay your employees on this schedule.
Edit your pay period end date.
Edit the date that should appear on paychecks for this pay period.
Note: The drop-down includes an option for last day of the month to accommodate months that have fewer days than others (e.g., February).
If you pay your employees either monthly or semi-monthly, you will need to complete a few additional fields. E.g., for Semi-monthly:
- Edit the day that should appear on paychecks for the second pay period of the month.
- Edit the day that should appear on paychecks for the first pay period of the month.
When finished, click OK.
