After 7:00pm ET has passed on a payroll submission deadline date, you will need to run a late payroll. The Homebase Payroll dashboard will change the Start Payroll button to Run Late Payroll and you will have 2 options once performing this action:
- Keep the current payday with paper checks - you will process the payroll through Homebase, but will pay your employees directly (direct deposit is not available).
- Move your payday to the next available banking day to allow for direct deposit - in this option, the payment to your employees will be later than the original payment date.
Note: this option will remain available until you have passed the originally scheduled payday. For example, if the original payday was Friday, on Saturday you will no longer have this option available and the next scheduled regular payroll will open.
