PPX: How to issue manual checks

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.

The check is negotiable and can be given to the employee to be cashed. The check will then be listed on the following payroll as "Manual" so the tax liabilities can be taken into account.
