Direct Deposit setup failed, due to incorrect acct info, but I can't find how to update the information and have the DD process try to verify the bank account.


Hello there, mweaver68,

When incorrect account information is used during the direct deposit set up, you can update it via bank account change request. First, download the form and submit it to us via email or fax.

Here's the article that contains the email address and the fax number: Change your Direct Deposit Bank Account (Update bank account information via form section).

Complete the verification, and activation steps to successfully use direct deposit. If you need to pay the employees, you can issue paper checks.

Once the account is updated, check your bank statement after two to three banking days. Look for the two test debits which you need to enter in the QuickBooks Account Maintenance page to verify your Direct Deposit bank account information.

To know more about signing up and direct deposit processing timeline, kindly check out this article: Set up Direct Deposit.

If you wish to pay your employees under direct deposit, these articles will guide you through the steps you need:

Please let me know if you have other payroll concerns. I'm always around if you need help.

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.
