Question: I use manual check entry in (Microsoft Dynamics GP) to re-pay a deduction that was taken in error. Is there a better way to do that?
Answer: Yes, use a negative deduction!
Watch this video and see how I do this in Microsoft Dynamics GP.
During a recent GPUG payroll training class I was asked about how to handle negative payroll deductions. A couple of attendees offered up that they pay the employee a $0.01 pay check. I took this process a step further in my video by utilizing Piecework.
Another way around it is to pay the employee for one hour of time and deduct that one hour on the next pay check. This would be a good method if you are dealing with a TSA (Tax Sheltered Annuity) deduction.
