An employee filled in his timesheet incorrectly and now I owe him pay for an extra 4 hours.  How do I process his backpay? I am using Accounts Hosted

    Amend the pay to show the extra 4 hours and then pay him the difference between what you paid him then and what he should have been paid. You could run it through a clearing account

    How will that affect the amount on the pay cheque.  I am using bank data and when there has been a split payment in the past it has not liked it much for matching payments with the bank transactions.

    Hi Emma,

    Thanks for asking the Reckon Community.

    If you need to pay your employee immediately, just do another pay run just for him and the 4 hours.

    Alternatively, pay him the extra four hours in the next pay, either over his normal hours, or as an additional Ordinary Time Earnings payroll item.  

    Hope this helps.
