Client Wants to Change Payroll schedule

I have a client that I took over payroll from another Proadvisor in March and the client is now realizing that the prior ProAdvisor had her pay periods incorrectly set. We realized this when my client had several employees where the hours in the period appeared to be OT. However,. the payperiod that the client thought was being used is off by several days.

Current QB Setup = 1st - 15th pay period and paycheck on 25th of month
Client wants = 6th - 20th pay period and paycheck on 25th

Current QB Setup = 16th - last day of month and paycheck on the 10th of next month
Client wants = 21st - 5th and paycheck on the 10th of the month.

I am trying to wrap my brain around how to fix the payroll schedule so that we don't miss any dates, duplicate any dates already paid (hours), and of course mess anything up without the current monthly payroll tax deposits that are made for period 1-end of month on the 15th of next month.

Please help...

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
