How do I assign check numbers?
Check numbers are assigned in a batch process. If printing checks, be sure to verify the next check number on the physical check stock. If a county prints the checks, this step is just a required process.
Go to Advanced Payroll > Payroll Control Center
- Click Pay Cycles tab
- Click Assign Check #s
- Select Account Number that is issuing the checks.
- Enter Starting Number
- Click Assign, this will fill in check numbers for all non-EFT paychecks.
Assigning check numbers is a REQUIRED step before payroll can be posted. If a county issues the paychecks, assign any number to the checks.
It is good practice to verify the next available check number by looking at the physical check stock.
