SL 2015 CU2 - Payroll Batch: CalQtr does not match the period to post and period entered

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

I am helping a user with payroll earnings and deductions report discrepancies.   It seems the latest PR Batch from June has the correct period entered and period to post which is '201706'.  However, the Calendar Quarter is listed as '3' in the PRTran table.  This is of course adding the batch totals to Quarter 3 in the earnings and deductions report as well as I would assume the 941.

How did this get detached and what is the best course of action to align the calendar quarter with the period to post?  Thanks in advance.

Edit: I just noticed the 'check date' is from July.  They will have to change the payroll tax payment to get it aligned with SL 941 reporting.

    The earnings and deduction report is based on the check date, not the period to post.  So, I suspect that this payroll batch had a check date in July.  All the payroll reports that are tax related are based on the check date as they must be for tax basis reporting.  So, the 941 report will also reflect this activity as quarter 3.  Are you saying the check date was wrong or are you just confusing this with the posting period (which is GL related)?
