If the calculated process date is a non-business date (generally weekends and certain holidays), it is adjusted based upon the following rules:
If the recurring payment’s "Pay Backward" option is selected, the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date prior to the calculated process date.
If the recurring payment’s "Pay Backward" option is not selected (or if the "Pay Backward" option is not available), the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date after the calculated process date.
Note: If your frequency settings for the recurring payment specify the 29th, 30th, or 31st as a particular day of the month for processing and that day does not exist in the month of the calculated process date, then the last calendar day of that month is used as the calculated process date.
