I just ran my direct deposit payroll but realized I forgot one employee.

Hi there, 

 

Mistakes like these are common and I'd be happy to show you how to get your employee paid. 

 

In order to accomplish this, you'll have to run the payroll again just for the employee in question. Here's how:

  1. In the left navigation bar, click Employees.
  2. Click Run payroll.  
  3. Select the employee to pay.
  4. At the Enter employee pay details page, select employees to pay, and click Create another cheque for employee.
  5. Enter the details of the paycheque, and click Preview payroll.
  6. Review and submit.

Here's a helpful article which shows you how to run payroll in QuickBooks: How to run payroll.
