How do I correct a Direct Deposit already submitted yesterday?

How do I correct a Direct Deposit already submitted yesterday  for one employee who is hourly based, I need to add December 31st last day of 2018 work hours not included in his Direct Deposit already submitted? Can I pay him with a regular check? What would happen if I just submit Monday December 31, 2018 hours worked on the next Direct Deposit on January 3, 2019?


Hi there barbara,

You can create a second paycheck for the work hours that is not included on your employees paycheck.

Let me show you how:

  1. On the Pay day tab select the Create 2nd Paycheck hyperlink.
  2. Select the pay period and pay date.
  3. Fill all necessary section especially the Hours worked of your employee.
  4. Click the Create button.
  5. Then, you’ll need to click the approval hyperlink on the reminder that shows under Create Paychecks.
  6. Click the Approved paychecks button.
  7. Select Continue.
  8. You either put a check number or skip it.

 I’ve attached some screenshots below for visual reference.

You can also check this article for additional information about creating paychecks: Create paychecks in QuickBooks Online Payroll and Intuit Online Payroll.

Please let me know if you have additional question about your employees 2nd paycheck. I’ll be here to help have a great day!

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.
