How do i connect a bank for payroll in QBO?

Thanks for posting your question here, @calebrbush


I'd be glad to provide info with connecting a bank account for your payroll in QBO. 


Before going into detail, if you use one of our eight partner banks, you can connect your bank instantly. Other banks can be connected through our regular bank verification process. This can take up to three business days. 


For regular bank verification, see the instructions below: 

  1. From the Connecting your bank window, search and select your bank. 
  2. Choose Connect using your routing and account numbers
  3. Type in your Bank account number and Bank routing number, and click on Next
  4. Verify your business information and pick Next
  5. Verify principle officer details and go to Submit
  6. To thoroughly verify your bank account information, a test transaction will appear in your bank account within two business days. An email will be sent for further steps. 

For more information about setting up your bank account for payroll, here are several details articles: 

Let me know if the steps above do the trick. If you have any more questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to leave a comment below. Have a good one!
