Restoring Payroll Files
If the payroll has been run for the period but a FPS has not been submitted and provided an instant backup copy of the files was taken as part of the Payroll Run procedure then the option is available to restore the files prior to the run. Respond as required. If you take the option to restore the payroll files then these files will be restored to exactly the same point as before thePayroll Run action was taken. The payroll status is reset to: PERIOD COMMENCED - PAYROLL NOT YET RUN.
