Un-Committing a Payroll


Mistakes do happen - and having committed your payrun, you will find that you need to actually un-commit the payrun, so that you may make changes and then re-run the pay.

This document outlines the process as well as the circumstances under which you may do so.

Getting There:

[ Navigator ] –> Payroll / Un-Commit a Payrun


Having processed a pay, and prior to banking the pay via an actual EFT transfer to the bank, you may un-commit the pay if you have noticed any problems with the pay.

Un-commiting the pay

Having select the payrun that you wish to un-commit, the system requires you to enter 3 pieces of data for audit purposes:

  • Requested By - Enter your username and password as defined in PowerForce
  • Authorised By - Enter (ideally have someone else) authorise the process - again the user needs to be an actual user of PowerForce. The one name cannot be both requestor and authorisor.
  • Reason for uncommitting this payrun
uncommit pay

If you do not enter a reason for the uncommit, you will be reminded to do so. Remember this is to maintain a valid system audit of your payroll processing.

uncommit reason

Once you press the "process" button, the sytem has to undo all of the steps that were performed during the commit process. The process will run as long as the actual commit process, as this is re-running the commit process in reverse.

Therefore allow the process to run its course and do not attempt to cancel the processing, as this will leave your system in a broken state.

Once the process is completed, the system will notify you - and you may go back and re-process the payrun.

Mischellaneous Warning

If you process an un-commit process on a date other than the date that you ran your payrun, the system will notify you that the EFT file is later than 1 day old.
