PY - Checklist
This checklist is a list of helpful payroll processing tips and the applicable reports/queries that should be run during the payroll processing weeks.
This checklist will identify the key payroll reports and queries that should be run and reviewed during the payroll calculation period to process and pay employees correctly. In addition, the document provides other helpful tips and reminders.
For biweekly paid employees, the payroll normally begins on Sunday night, with a final calculation and confirmation on Thursdays. Post confirm checks/queries are included in the document. For monthly paid employees, the processes begin normally Friday night, then Sunday through Wednesday as with biweekly. However, there are some calendar anomalies so checking the payroll calendare (link below) is a best practice.
