Update an employee's direct deposit bank info

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 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 cheque 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 cheque or vice versa.

A few things to consider:

  • If an employee's pay method is temporarily changed from direct deposit to cheque, their bank information retains when their pay method is changed back to DD.
