Christmas Day Holiday May Require Change in Processing ScheduleWednesday, December 25, 2019 will be Christmas Day, a federal holiday. The offices of Vision Payroll will close Christmas Eve, Tuesday December 24 at 2 pm EST and re-open Thursday December 26. Most banks will also be closed in observance of the holiday. Payroll changes and hours must be submitted before the processing deadlines as listed below.

Normal Payroll Date Process Deadline
12/25/2019 12/20/2019
12/26/2019 12/23/2019
12/27/2019 12/24/2019

Payroll Dates May Be Affected by Christmas Day

Payrolls dated December 25 will be paid December 24 unless a previous change in schedule has been submitted. Payrolls submitted after these processing deadlines will be pushed back until the next available processing day. No changes are required for payrolls dated December 30.

Bank Withdrawal Dates Will Change for Some Payrolls

For payrolls dated December 24, including those normally paid on Wednesdays, ACH withdrawals from clients’ accounts will occur on Monday, December 23. For payrolls dated December 26, ACH withdrawals from clients’ accounts will occur on Tuesday, December 24. This is necessary to ensure timely crediting of employees’ accounts on the proper day.

UPS Will Limit Deliveries and Pickups

Due to heavy USPS and UPS delivery requirements as well as limited bank hours and staffing, we strongly recommend submitting payrolls during this time as early as practicable. Since the final bank processing for ACH transactions on December 24 is 1 pm EST, in order to ensure proper crediting of transactions for Thursday, December 26, we recommend submitting payrolls dated Thursday no later than 2 pm EST, Monday, December 23. Ground packages received by UPS on December 24 do not ship from UPS until December 26 so we do not recommend submitting on that date any payrolls dated before December 27.

New Year’s Day Is Next Federal Holiday

The next federal holiday will be Wednesday, January 1, 2020, New Year’s Day. Contact Vision Payroll as soon as possible to make changes to or for questions on your processing schedule.
