Revert a pay run to draft

Revert the last posted pay run to draft so you can make changes before you pay your employees.

You can only revert the most recent pay run for the pay period. If you've already paid your employees or you're trying to correct older pay runs, you'll need to process an unscheduled pay run to make those adjustments.

Before you start

Make sure you remove any draft pay runs in the period.

Revert a posted pay run to draft

  1. In the Payroll menu, select Pay Runs.
  2. Click the pay run you want to revert.
  3. Click Options and click Revert Pay Run.
  4. Click Yes to confirm.

After you revert a pay run, the transaction in Xero will be unposted (including tax amounts).

Make changes to the draft pay run by adjusting your employees' pay, and then process the pay run as usual.
