How to Cancel a Payroll
Written by Margaret Mwangi

You may find that the figures that you have in the Payroll don’t conform with what you may want to pay the employees or you were just trying to run the payroll, which brings a need to cancel the payroll and restart the process.

  • Click the menu "Payroll"

  • Click "Run payroll"

  • Click on the "Action button"

  • Click on "Cancel payroll". This action will remove the payroll batch and the associated payrolls. Also, it reverses salary advances, deductions, and allowances so that it does not affect the next run.
