This section has the following fields:
Payroll Schedule: The name of the payroll schedule that is running. You gave this name to the schedule when you set it up.
If you're running Unscheduled Payroll, only Pay Employees appears. If you're writing a termination check, Paycheck Type: Termination appears.
Employees selected to pay: The number of employees who are assigned to this scheduled payroll run. You can click the column to uncheck an employee from this particular payroll run. The number of employees changes accordingly.
If you're running a payroll schedule, the number of employees shown defaults to the number of employees who're assigned to the payroll schedule. If you're running Unscheduled Payroll or a termination paycheck, this number changes when you an employee's name.
Check Date and Pay Period Ends date:
If you're running Unscheduled Payroll or a termination paycheck, update the Check Date or Pay Period Ends date.
Note: If you're using Assisted Payroll or Direct Deposit services, remember to send your paychecks two business days before you want the employee to be paid.
Important: If you're running a payroll schedule, don't update the Check Date or Pay Period Ends date here because doing so will cause scheduling problems. Instead, edit your existing payroll schedule.
Bank Account: The account QuickBooks uses to track payroll transactions. This account is not the actual bank account where you withdraw money from, but merely used for tracking purposes. If you want to change the account that tracks payroll transactions, click the Bank Account drop-down arrow and then click to select another account.
Bank Account Balance: The available balance in the bank account.
