Hello there, james,
I’ll share what I know about the payment methods for your direct deposit (DD) payroll.
You can only use 1 bank account information for your DD in QuickBooks Online Payroll (QBOP).
Since you wanted to have 2 bank accounts setup for DD, I’d recommend submitting feedback to our Product Development Team. By doing so, they’ll know how you’d like to pay certain employees with a separate bank account and a few with another account.
Your feedback is valuable to us so let’s share it with our engineers by following the steps below:
To learn more about how DD works in QBOP, you can read through these articles below:
If I can be of further assistance, don’t hesitate to add a comment below, james. I'll gladly help. Thank you for doing business with QuickBooks!
How did you go around this? I'm thinking about starting a separate subscription for the 2nd account. I'm wondering if you found a better solution.
I want to pay certain employees with a separate account and a few with another account.
Good morning, @sylvia14! You can certainly start another subscription to split up those employees and pay them from different accounts.
Here's the link to our different subscription options: Quickbooks Online Plans & Pricing.

Hello there, Bahiy.
I can see how beneficial to have two bank account payment methods for payroll in QuickBooks Online. For now, I cannot tell when this feature will be ready. We can take the suggestions offered by my colleague above by creating a separate subscription. That way, you can pay your employees in different accounts.

If you have 2 seperate payroll subscriptions, won't that create an issue when filing the tax returns through since everything would need to be reported on 1 form for the same EIN?
Hey there, @BadassBookkeeperCO.
Thanks for following the thread. I'd be happy to provide additional insight into using two separate payroll subscriptions.
When it comes to EINs, each one should be tied to a different Online Payroll subscription. Therefore, if you hypothetically had two different EINs, you'd be required to create a second account for operating and financial reasons. This is mainly because the IRS requires each company to have separate books. With that being said, using the same EIN with two separate Online Payroll subscriptions could cause issues with reporting, etc.
