On 9/15 I had an issue with payroll posting twice. It did this on its own. Our apps run through a cloud network service company. Because of some other issues we were having I ask them about what happen on 9/15. They did say that if for some reason I had a disconnection or interruption at the time I "posted direct deposit" that may have created the second one. Not sure which posting is actually the one that is the payroll or even if it matters so I did a journal entry to revise the posting. I know that journal entries do not come through to the bank statement, so now I am trying to reconcile the September bank. Of course there are 2 payroll posting showing up, so whether I click on it or not it is out of balance by that amount on one side or the other.
My question, if I void the posting that shows up under the Void Bank Transaction (which there is only 1 direct deposit transaction # showing) will that mess up something else. Or should I just let it show as out of balance and let it clear itself out over the next couple of months. Also, we pay by direct deposit, so when I create the direct deposit it goes into a holding account and the " post direct deposit" step clears it out. If I void the one showing will it affect the actual direct deposit pay checks that show up. In other words are they connected and will it void the checks ( per say) as well?
