Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: My payroll companies are still in December 2022. Can I install the update?

A: As with all other updates, it is recommended to update your payroll when your payroll companies are in a new pay period, before printing final reports and payslip, and paying your employees. Select "Later" to update your payroll once your companies are in a new pay period.
