Payroll recalculated prior period payroll?


M

Michael S. Rosen

We have a client whose payroll was not setup correctly in the
beginning. Payroll items were posting to incorrect liability and
expense accounts. So we went in and set everything up properly. But
now about six paychecks for one employee have changed from what they
were prior to fixing payroll. Is it at all possible that QuickBooks
would recalculate payroll when it reposted the paychecks? It did go
back and correctly post all previous paychecks to reflect the proper
liability/expense accounts.

And I can't find anything on the bank reconciliation discrepancy
report and the reconciliation reports for those periods simply changed
to reflect the new numbers. QuickBooks doesn't provide any way to
report the bank balance on the rec report so I can't easily prove what
happened by showing an out of balance rec report.

Unfortunately, the audit trail option was not enabled so I can't see
what may have happened (not sure if that would have told me anything
anyway).

Thanks,
Mike
