Pay Period(s) Ending – For GL purposes (i.e. Payroll Journals and Hardcopy EBT Reports) there are only two pay periods per month: the 15th and the last day of the month. In reality there are other payrolls that may run each month (e.g. Cell Phone pay period which is usually the 16th of the month and other pay periods as needed to allow for year-end adjustments). All special payrolls are included in one of the “regular” GL journals and EBT reports. The WEB Check and Advice roster will show each pay period separately.
Pay Day – The date which employees are paid.
Pay Sheet Created – This date /and time marks when the Payroll Process “begins”. All PAN distribution changes after this time will not take effect until next pay period.
Payroll Processing Completed – All checks have been created. The Check/Advice roster has been prepared. The WEB EBT data is now available. Several GL adjustments, including the encumbrance calculations, occur between this point in time and when the Payroll journal is actually posted to the General Ledger (see next event). Other GL adjustments include Reallocations, Work Study, etc. There may be a delay between the creation of the Check/Advice Roster and when the WEB EBT data is available. This event will be recorded when both have occurred. A FBS News Post will continued to be created when the Check/Advice Roster is available.
Payroll Posted to the General Ledger – Indicates the Payroll Journal has been posted to the General Ledger and all reports are current. The information shown on WEB Journal Detail and Encumbrance reports is updated sometime during the previous day.
