We designed our payroll solution to be easy to use and highly efficient, especially in the case of an emergency. Even after you have processed payroll, you can cancel payroll prior to the ACH file being sent to the bank on the payroll process date. The file is sent at 5pm, 7pm, and 9pm (Eastern) on payroll processing days. If you miss the deadline for your payroll, the system will let you know the next steps. For example, you might realize that you would like to add or change something in the payroll you have already processed. You can cancel payroll and get a fresh start.

If you need to change, delete, or revert a payroll run that has been sent to the bank, see How to Change, Delete, or Reverse a Payroll Run or Individual Check.
