Off-cycle US Payroll process
1) Create off-cycle: Select entities and employees that you want to include in the off-cycle
2) Approve off-cycle payroll: Add payroll items and approve the payroll report.
3) Fund payroll: Fund the off-cycle payroll.
4) Employees get paid: If you pay your employees, you'll receive a list of payments to make just like in a regular cycle. If you pay employees via Deel (Payment by Deel method), it will take between 1 and 3 business days for the payment to arrive after you fund the off-cycle.
