Override Pay Run Settings
On the input sheet in Everest, there is an option to override pay run settings for each employee. The most common overrides include paying an employee by cheque instead of direct deposit, or changing the CPP, EI, or tax amount. To do this, select the drop down menu to the left of the employee’s name, and choose “Override Pay Run Settings”.
A pop-up window will come up with options you can override for that current pay run.
Select the check box on the left for any changes to be made, and enter in the new dollar amount for any CPP, EI or tax amount changes. The dollar amount entered in for CPP, EI or tax will be the total amount, overriding any previous calculations. If you are looking for the provincial tax amount, it is included in the Federal Income Tax amount line- the amount you enter will be both Federal and Provincial tax added together. Please note it is not recommended to reduce the amounts otherwise there may be payments owing for CPP, EI and Tax at T4 time. Once the changes are selected, hit “Save” to implement them.
