I use QBO full payroll with direct deposit. Can I edit payroll after submitting?

Glad to know you're using our direct deposit service, @tammy23.


Yes, you can edit your direct deposit paycheck to add your holiday pay. The process generally depends if you'll do it before or after the pay date.


If it's done before the pay date, here's how:


  1. Go to the Workers or Payroll menu, and then choose Employees.
  2. Select the Employee's name, and then click the Paycheck list. If the status shows Not processed yet, you can delete and recreate the paycheck.
  3. Tap the checkbox next to the pay date, and then pick the Delete button.
  4. Hit Yes to confirm the action.
  5. Go back to the Employee list and recreate the paycheck.


However, if it's made after the pay date, here are the steps to follow:


  1. Go to the Workers or Payroll menu, and then select Employees.
  2. Pick the Employee name, and then choose the Paycheck list.
  3. If the status shows Processed, you'll need to contact us for further assistance: Contact Us. Check out the Online Payroll section of this article for the support hours so you can decide the time most convenient for you: Support Hours.

Please refer to this article for more info about the steps above: Edit Payroll checks.


You'll also want to run some payroll reports available in QuickBooks Online to take a close look at your business's finances. Some examples are: 


  1. Employees Details report which contains employee data such as employment and pay info, payroll details, and more.
  2. Payroll Details report gives you detailed info of your employee's payroll.
  3. Payroll tax Payments report shows you the tax payments you have made electronically or tax payments you have recorded manually in your online payroll account.


 Feel free to browse this resource for more details: Run payroll reports.

Then, you can customize them to personalize their formats and info. Check out this article for more tips: Customize reports.


I'm always around if you need help with managing your payroll or other QuickBooks-related concerns. Take care and have a good one.
