How can I setup direct deposit for employee where one bank account receives a set dollar amount and the other bank account receives the remaining pay?

Hello there, victoria.

QuickBooks Online gives you the option to split the employee's direct deposit into two accounts. On the setup page, you'll be asked a fixed amount to be deposited to the first account, then QuickBooks will automatically send the remaining amount to the second one. You’ll see this option in Step 5 when you edit or enter your employee’s banking information. Let me show you how:

  1. Go to Employees, then click the employee's name to open his/her profile.
  2. Click the pencil icon beside Pay.
  3. Click the pencil icon under Step 5.
  4. Select Direct deposit to two accounts under What do you use to pay.
  5. Enter the fix amount to be deposited to the first account.
  6. Type in all required information and click OK.

Please see this article for more information: Set up direct deposit for your employees. You can check out the attached screenshots below as an additional reference.

Let me know if you have follow-up questions. I'd be happy to answer them for you.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
