ezPaycheck Payroll Software: How to Generate Report by Pay Period Ending Date or by Check Issue Date


ezPaycheck generates paychecks and report by pay period ending date by default. However, customers can change the option to generate the report by Pay Date.

For example: Paycheck #30001, for pay period 12/16/2012 to 12/31/2012 paid on 1/2/2013

If you select to generate the report by Pay period Ending Date, paycheck #30001 is the last check of year 2012 and will be displayed on Year 2012 report.

If you select to generate the report by Pay Date, paycheck #30001 is the first check of year 2013 and will be displayed on Year 2013 report.
