Yes, you can change the employer name, haikadavtyan.

You'll have to update your payroll settings first to display the legal name on your paychecks. 

Here's how:

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Select Payroll Settings.
  3. Under Business Information click Contact Information and enter the legal name.
  4. And under General Tax Information and enter also the legal name.

Then, print the previous paychecks again.

That should work! Feel free to post again if you have any questions. I'm always here to help.

Thanks, i also thought that. But please note that i am not asking about changing my credit card info, but just change employer's name to be displayed the legal name instead of DBA. Can that also be done for past pay stubs?

Once the payroll settings will be edited into legal name instead of DBA. You'll be able to change it, for your recent transactions. However, for your past pay stubs the changes won't appear.
