How does GP handle a payroll recalc? In our current system, we might change a time code from one type to another for a period that has already been paid or enter a new payrate with an effective date for a period or periods that have been paid. Our current system recalculates the past period and adds or subtracts the difference from the current pay. We had a GP demo where we were shown only a manual way to correct prior payrolls. If there was a difference from a previous pay we would have to calculate it and enter it into a window. I'm hoping to hear from current users that there is a more efficient way to handle this situation.
Have you looked at the Retroactive pay functionality?
(Microsoft Dynamics GP menu >> Tools >> Utilities >> Payroll >> Retroactive Payment Management)

Actually we don't have Microsoft Dynamics yet. We're just looking at it as a potential replacement for our current system. We had a demo of Dynamics and were shown only a manual process to recalculate differences from previous payrolls. So...I have no access to the path you noted. Does "retroactive payroll management" provide a simple reclass of one paytype to another where the system will recalculate differences, if any, or does the user have to recalculate manually and enter differences?
Thanks for your assistance,
