Hey there, kennia-calimaele.

2. Select Payroll Settings.

3. Choose Preferences at the top of the page, beside of Setup.

4. Click Accounting Preferences.

5. Select Customize at the bottom of the page.

6. You'll then be able to choose the checking account to use for payroll.

You'll now be able to change the bank account used for payroll. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any other questions.
