Consider the following in Payroll in Microsoft Dynamics SL:
Payroll checks are paid several days after the pay period end date. As an example, the check for a pay period from 01/01/2016 through 01/31/2016 is paid on 02/04/2016. When a benefit is used in the prior pay period, and then the next pay period includes that check date, and the benefit year closes in that pay period, the beginning balance and YTD Used for the benefit are incorrect.
