Only these pay details can be edited once you’ve recorded a pay:

  • pay period

  • payment method

  • employee bank account details

  • statement text

  • whether a cheque or pay slip needs to be printed or emailed.

If you need to correct other details, such as record leave or correct a payment amount, you'll need to reverse or delete the pay and enter it again. Note that your user role must allow you to delete or reverse transactions.

Before you make changes, you need to set your preferences to allow transactions to be changed (see below).

How to edit a pay

To edit a a pay you’ve already recorded, locate and open the pay transaction. You can use the Find Transactions option at the bottom of the Command Centre, select the employee in the Card tab and clicking the pay's blue zoom arrow (if the zoom arrow is not blue, you'll need to change your security preferences).

Using timesheets? You can't reverse a pay which uses timesheets but you'll be able to delete it.

I recorded a pay with incorrect leave or super amounts, how do I fix it?

To fix a pay which contained incorrect super or leave amounts, either make the adjustment on their next pay, or record a new pay for the employee using the Process Payroll Assistant (Payroll command centre > Process Payroll).

Enter the super amounts or leave hours you need to adjust as positive or negative amounts. Remember to zero out all the categories that you are not adjusting.

The end result should be $0 net pay, and the only amounts/values should be against the categories you are editing. You'll be notified that you are recording a $0 pay, and that it will be a "void" cheque. That's fine in this case.
