For many businesses, the costs of printing and mailing manual checks are a necessity. These checks must be processed by hand by getting the bank account number, writing the check, and mailing it. Processing checks by hand can also consume a great deal of time. If you are the type of business that needs your paychecks to be processed quickly, computer-based payroll software can help you save time and money. 

Time frame 

Once you have created your manual checks, you’ll need to assign them to a specific payroll. You can do this in two different ways. The first is to use the Pay Cycle Dashboard. You can find past payrolls by selecting Company > Payroll > Past Payrolls. This will let you know the total amount and the number of manual checks. To assign the manual check to a payroll, follow the steps below.
