Payroll Updates: Presidents Day 2020

presidents day banking holiday 2020

On Monday, February 17th, we will celebrate Presidents Day in honor of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and our other presidents, past and present. As we reflect and remember the 45 individuals who have sat at the head of this country over the past two centuries, Southland Data Processing would also like to remind you that since Presidents Day is a banking holiday, you may need to do some additional payroll prep next week.

Although Southland Data Processing will be open, transfers will be pushed back a day for check dates on or after the holiday. Direct deposits will also not be live for payrolls with check dates on February 17th.

For your employees to receive their pay by February 17th, you should:

  • Change your check date to Friday, February 14th
  • Send your payroll by 2:00 PM PT on Wednesday, February 12th

Other affected check dates that will need to submit early:

  • Checks dated Tuesday, February 18th – send payroll by 2:00 PM PT on Thursday, February 13th
  • Checks dated Wednesday, February 19th – send payroll by 2:00 PM PT on Friday, February 14th

We recommend you always check the Transfers section on your Payroll Summary report, which has the exact transfer amounts and dates.

As always, our team is here to help with any questions you have about your payroll or check dates. We’ll always pick up the phone, so don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions.

We hope you have a wonderful Presidents Day weekend!
