If your check date lands on a bank holiday, you can change the check date to be a business day before or after the holiday.

In this article, you will learn:

How to edit the check date

  1. Log in to your Fingercheck account as an Administrator.

  2. Click the PAYROLL tab.

  3. In the Upcoming Payroll section, click Run Payroll.

  4. In the Run Payroll pop-up window, hover over Review & Run, and click Start.

  5. On the Run Payroll screen, make sure you have the correct Pay Period selected, and click Next.

  6. In the upper-right corner of the Run Payroll screen, click the Edit icon (pencil).

  7. In the Check Date field, enter the new check date, and click Save.

    When saving, if you see a red x symbol next to run number, you already have this check date with the same run number. Simply change the run number, and click Save.

Tips to remember when changing the check date

  • For no additional fees, the check date must be at least two business days before the day you process payroll.

  • Be aware of the pay period begin and end dates. If you process the payroll earlier than the pay period end date, your hourly employees will not be paid for hours worked on the payday. The payroll will include only the hours from the pay period begin date until you start the payroll. If this is the case, you can create a special payroll next time to pay your employees to cover the leftover day or edit your next payroll to cover this day.
