Calculate travel and subsistence rates retrospectively

Do you know whether it is possible to calculate travel and subsistence rates retrospectively? I want to make changes to expense rates based on the validity dates and to calculate amount owed to/from employees based on changes to rates that are to be backdated.

Although I have never tried this, theoretically, it should be possible. It would take some time and testing, but that is easily done in your test system. ACH files can be created to push and pull funds from accounts. The ACH file that is created should be able to transmit amounts owed to/from the employee accounts based on changes to the rates. The only issues that I can see are related to insufficient funds in the employee's account and the trigger for reprocessing the calculation after rate changes. You can easily test your scenario though. I would suggest moving forward with a test plan and working through the issues. The 'pull' seems to be the biggest issue to me at this point. I would be very hesitant to pull the funds back once transmitted. I would prefer to use another method of tracking the net differences and adjust the amounts on subsequent checks or through payroll adjustments since these are employees.
