How to Reverse an Overpayment in Payroll

An irregular payroll earning such as Holidays or Vacation is overpaid in a certain pay period.

The company wishes to reduce the amount in the following pay period, but that specific earning code does not apply or the reduction is greater than the applied amount.


A negative amount may not be entered in an earning transaction.


One option to reduce the amount of pay is to set up a deduction code for that transaction (such as holiday or vacation).

The amount entered is a reduction in the total pay.
