When to use Unscheduled Payroll instead of creating a payroll item

Some payroll items can be included as part of the employee's paycheck and some payroll items can be paid to the employee as an Unscheduled Payroll check. For example, consider a bonus payment:

  • If you're paying a bonus at each pay period as an earning item, include the bonus item in the regular paycheck. Set up a bonus payroll item in the employee's paycheck or set up a bonus wage item in the Employee record.

  • If you give bonuses occasionally at your discretion for special occasions (for example, at the end of the year), create a bonus check for this special circumstance using Unscheduled Payroll (otherwise the bonus payroll item will keep appearing in the employee's regular paychecks).
