Nice to have you here in the Community space, @denise-mckoy-uwc.


You’ll want to go to the paycheck list and void the direct deposit (DD) paycheck from there. Ensure to void the paycheck before 5:00 PM PST. Beyond that, your payroll will be processed and can't be canceled.


To void the DD paycheck in your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account, you can follow these steps below:

  1. Go to the Payroll menu.
  2. Select Employees.
  3. Under Run Payroll, select the Paycheck list.
  4. Select the check(s) you'd like to delete.
  5. Delete or void the paycheck:
  6. Click the I understand that this action cannot be undone checkbox.
  7. Select Delete Paycheck or Void Paycheck to confirm the action.

For more details about deleting and voiding DD paycheck, you can read this article for reference (read the QBO section for the detailed steps): Delete or void employee paychecks.


If beyond 5:00 PM PST, I’d recommend getting in touch with your Support team. There, they can perform additional steps in voiding your DD and assist you further in finding the right account.

You might also want to run a report to keep track of your voided checks in QBO. I’ve added this article that will help you: How to create a report of voided checks.
