What happens when I miss the payroll run-by deadline?

The deadline to run payroll is always 4 business days prior to payday – before 4:30pm EST. You can always check the exact date by going to Payroll and viewing the "State" of payroll. If you are late, the state will have a red "Late" label.


If you miss the deadline to run payroll you will not be able to pay your employees though direct deposit. You will however, be able to pay out reimbursements and Humi will still remit your source deductions after you “Complete & Pay”.

Note: Humi will only be able to remit the source deductions if the late payroll is prior to your remittance schedule.
