What is a manual check?
A manual check is a check issued outside of payroll. It's used if someone forgot to pay an employee or paid the wrong hours, and the payroll has already been completed.
- Manual checks necessitate a physical printout and cannot be processed through direct deposit.
- While they won't be reprinted in the subsequent payroll run, they will be accounted for in the upcoming payroll reports (listed as "Manual") for tax payment purposes.
- Keep a copy for your records since a usable copy cannot be retrieved once processed with payroll.
Create a manual check
To create and view manual checks:
- From the Payroll (PPX) dashboard, click Manual Checks.
- Select the check date, division, and employee; input the check number and click Add.
- Input the check details: pay code and hours/regular pay.
- Click Continue, then Save and Calculate. Continue.
Note: Your saved manual checks will automatically be added to the list when you process payroll.
Print a Manual Check
To print the check:
- After the manual check is saved, load your check paper.
- Select the Pay Check icon to print the check.
Print Manual Check from PayDeck Dashboard
