We have accidently overpaid a staff member $250 over two weeks, he has agreed to pay this back @ $50 a week from his wages. obviously he has paid tax and super on the overpayment.
Im really not keen to delete the payrun as it affects too many staff and i dont want to mess with it. is there another way i can correct this?
I would be setting up a new wage* category and setting that up to deduct the amount from the employee. Do this do the following steps:
In terms of processing the pays you would need to manually enter the negative value against that employee i.e. go to Payroll>>Process Payroll and select the employee>>Select to bring up the Pay Employee and enter a negative value against that newly created payroll category. If it was set up to be an hourly category it would be a negative one to give you a negative value.
Alternatively you could go into the employee's card>>Payroll Details tab>>Standard Pay on the left hand side and enter it there. This will be included when processing the employee's pays. Do make sure you remove it once the value has been paid back.
This to consider:
*The reason why this is a wage category and not a deduction category as you have overpaid the employee through a wage category so doing it as a wage category you can get the correct Gross Payments come year of the year.
Do let us know how you get on and if you require further assistance.
