    Article ID: 1000740


    When you select Change payment method for a liability in the Payroll Center, the Payment (deposit) method is missing from the payroll setup. As a result, you can't choose payment options such as check or e-pay.

    This problem is caused by damage within the Company file.

    Expected Outcome

    You will resolve the missing payment method and be able to set up a schedule for liability payments.


    You want to set up a schedule for liability payments.
