Paid Parental Leave Overpayment

HI

Hope someone can help me.

I had an employee who was on Paid Parental Leave.

I had set it up according to MYOB instructions and has worked well.

Except I didn't take notice of the exact day it was to end and I paid the employee an extra day as PPL.

I am wondering if anyone knows how I can rectify this.

Remembering that she has recieved an amount of $148.12 [one day PPL] and it should of been a day @ her ordinary hour worked rate.

I would like to rectify this so the liabilty and expense account etc are balanced and will be correct when it comes to Payment Summary time.

Thank you in advance

Cheers

Kathy

    Generally speaking there are two approaches you can consider:

     

    - Delete/reverse the original pay, then record it correctly again. If you are choosing to delete the pay, please note that all other type of transactions that this pay is part of (such as electronic payments, pay liabilities transactions) need to be deleted first.

     

    or

    - Record an adjustment pay, manually enter the positive/negative figures against affected payroll categories so their total can be updated. Figures in any other fields should be removed.
