Voiding Payroll


I have just created a pay cheque for an employee that is leaving the organization. It is schedule for direct deposit on April 28 and has not left my bank account yet. How do I reverse this so that I can pay via paper cheque instead?  If I delete the pay cheque, will it void the direct deposit as well? Thanks for your help!

Voiding Payroll

Hi Lorali45,


Welcome to the Community. It's essential to run payroll to ensure that your employees get paid. QuickBooks Online is a flexible program that simplifies the way you manage your books. I'd be glad to provide you with information on payroll.


If you have just created a pay cheque for an employee, I recommend that you delete that pay cheque. By deleting the pay cheque, the direct deposit will not be processed. I encourage you review this article on how to delete a pay cheque. You can also reach out to our customer support team for further assistance on this at 1-855-253-1536.


Let me know if you have questions, I'll be happy to help.
