Process an unscheduled pay run

Add an unscheduled pay run to post a payment outside the normal payroll cycle.

About adjusting a processed pay run

Some of the common reasons for creating an unscheduled pay run are to:

  • Make adjustments to a previously posted pay run.
  • Include missed items.
  • Process one-off out of cycle transactions.
  • Reverse wages in a negative pay run.

You can go back eight pay periods from the current date (today's date) when adjusting a processed pay run. You cannot go back to a previous year if adjusting quarterly pay runs.

Make sure you've removed any existing draft pay runs with the same pay calendar before you continue.
