wages overpaid

We have overpaid a staff person and instead of reducing the next pay the staff member has paid the over payment back to us. How can I reduce his gross wages to reflect what he has returned to us. I have tried to do a negative pay run but it will not allow it. I also tried do a negative in the year to date step with no luck.

    Go back to the original pay and change it to the correct amount so that when you do your bank rec the total net wages and the deposit on the bank statement will be ticked to equal the wages payment

    and then do an STP update

    the returned payment was done over a week later?

    That doesn’t matter you just wait until the date it came in and reconcile at that date
