Override statutory deductions

Override statutory deductions

1. Create your ad-hoc or regular pay run. For more on how to create pay runs, check out our articles on How to create an ad-hoc pay run and How to create a regular pay run.

2. Find the employee you need to adjust by searching manually or using the filtering option outlined in our How to filter or group the input sheet article.

3. Click the arrow next to the employee's name, and select Override Pay Run Settings.

4. Select the check box next to the amount you want to adjust. This will make the entry box available for changes.

5. Enter the value you want to replace the calculated amount. Any box that is checked will over-ride (if 0.00 is left entered, 0.00 will override the calculated amount. Ensure checkboxes are untouched if you wish to only adjust one value. If you are over-riding the Tax Amount, put the combined Federal and Provincial Tax amount into the box - there will be no Provincial tax split out on the pay-stub. 

6. The override values should only have 2 digits after the decimal point.

7. Click Save to confirm your overrides. We recommend verifying the information by previewing the employee's pay stub—for instructions, check out our article on How to preview a pay-stub.
