Hi Julieanne.  Pay it as an Unscheduled Payroll, instead of a Scheduled Payroo, but you will need to calculate the appropriate amount of tax manually to cater for the full amount of the gross for the period of the last pay plus the back pay amount.

Thanks John. How do I edit the amounts in the payroll? It keeps saying I can't change the salary amount or it adds it to leave, so the normal pay is there again! I just want to pay a lesser amount than the normal salary. Thanks for your help. Julieanne

Hello, Can anyone help me with this asap, as I need to process it this morning and I don't want to sit on Tech support phone for 45 minutes ( current waiting time!).
Thanks

Hi Julieanne.  Create a new payroll item called  Backpay and then use it.  You will need to set this as being an addition and not as salary.
