Difference between a Main Run and an Interim Run?

Difference between a Main Run and an Interim Run?

A Main Run: Refers to a pay run that has been automatically created based on the set-up that was done when the frequency was created. The Main Run needs to be open for editing before payroll can be processed. A Main Run can never be deleted.

An Interim Run: This type of run enables the user to create additional runs. An Interim Run can be used, for example, to pay an employee on a different pay date than the rest of company or to process a bonus pay run. It can also be used to process a correction for an employee after the Main Run has closed. A user can delete an Interim Run if no values have been posted to any employees’ Payslip Screens. There is no limit to the number of Interim Runs that can be created.
