Q: We have started a new Fiscal Year for this client, but we need to go back and add a payroll in the previous Fiscal Year. How can we do that?
A: Unlike AP or AR, Payroll can let you do it without any repercussions. First set your system (processing) date to the period you want to process payroll in. Next go to File> company Maintenace> Master Data properties> Payroll> and set the Current Period to the same date.
Now you can proceed with processing the payroll.
When you are done, go to Files> Start new period files> and click on Reclose Ledger FYE. Finally, Change the system (processing) date back to the current date then go to File> company Maintenace> Master Data properties> Payroll> and reset the Current Period back to the current date as well.
