Re: payroll overpayment



Depending on how that bonus was paid would depend on the best course of action that I can see:


If you entered two separate pays i.e. the bonus and then processed another pay for the overpayment, you could restore a backup or process a negative pay to cancel out the existing pay.


If you have entered the one pay but it had double the amount on it, you would be looking at doing a negative amount on the next pay for that overpayment amount to deduct funds from the employee. Do note that they may be some PAYG and other implications.
