After a payslip has been processed, there may be an event where an adjustment needs to be made due to:

To make the adjustment you will need to edit the payslip which will reprocess the paycycle - depending on the adjustment made, a deduction may need to be applied. Once the changes are reprocessed, a new ABA file will be generated.

To edit a payslip that has already been processed: 

  1. In the quick menu navigate to Payroll > Pay.
  2. Select the Payslips tab (to view the processed pays) and select the period ending date, and any other filters to locate the desired payslip.
  3. Locate the relevant payslip and click Action > Edit.
