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.

Hi Anne,

Have you looked at the Retroactive pay functionality?

(Microsoft Dynamics GP menu >> Tools >> Utilities >> Payroll >> Retroactive Payment Management)

Kind regards,

Leslie

Hi Lesle, 

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,

Anne
