Payroll Reconciliation: Year End Close


Do not rely on reconciliation guidelines provided by vendor - do your homework.

Prior to the last payroll that closes for the calendar year you should be making sure third-party sick pay (if necessary) has been entered for the first three quarters of the year; make sure that all manual and voided checks are entered to date; schedule any bonus/incentive/wage payments due that are due in the current year; any adjustments from prior quarters that can be entered should be done at this time; and testing of any updates for year-end compliance should also be done at this time. This video reviews these items and discusses the reconciliation of quarter 4 for final tax payments and W-2 summary.
