Learn how to update an employee's direct deposit bank account.

Do you need to make a change to an employee's direct deposit bank account? We'll show you how for Intuit Online Payroll and QuickBooks Online Payroll.

Note Before changing an employee's bank information, we recommend that the employee first fill out a new DD authorization form.

Before you get started

You can use the following sets of steps to update the accounts in several ways.

  • Change from manual check to direct deposit, or vice versa.
  • Change direct deposit from one bank account to split direct deposit between two bank accounts, or vice versa.
  • Change direct deposit to split between direct deposit and manual check or vice versa.

A few things to consider.

  • If an employee's pay method is temporarily changed from direct deposit to manual check, their bank information will be retained when their pay method is changed back to DD.
  • Splits can only be done as a dollar amount—not as a percentage.

Once you make the following updates the changes are effective immediately but aren't retroactive.
