Note: The Advance Bank is only for paycheck reversals. If you want to process an Advance Draft, see the Advance Draft article.
The Advance Bank contains the outstanding balance from a check reversal. It shows the amount of money that is either owed to or from a specific employee as a result of the check reversal. The Advance Bank is auto-generated through the reversal process.
The Advance Bank is used for check reversals. Each Advance Bank entry is created with a Start Date of when the check reversal was processed. This will affect when the deduction is processed on the following check.
Check voids and reissues do not use the Advance Bank, since money is not owed in either of those situations.
