Payroll-I need to update/change the Owner/Principal in the Payroll Center?

Hi lalbert,

Thank you for reaching out.

If you're using QuickBooks Direct Deposit Services, you'll need to send a Direct Deposit Primary Principal Change Request. The complete instruction and downloadable form are provided in this article: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1437054.

Once we receive the form, our back end team will review the request and the attached requirements. Processing takes 3 to 5 business days from the date the complete requirements are received. Please wait for an email confirming the status of your request.

You may also contact QuickBooks payroll support for further assistance . Here's how:

  1. Go to this link to get the phone number: https://payroll.intuit.com/support/contact/?infosrc=qs&service=16.
  2. Select Payroll, then click View Contact Info.

Leave a comment if you need anything else.

Hello jm55,

 

Thank you for posting here in the Community. It would be my pleasure to answer any questions you may have with changing the primary principal in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

You can complete the Primary Principal Change form to update the current principal on your account. To download, you can follow the set of instructions found in the article I suggest on this (scroll down to Change the primary principal):

 

Change primary principal for Basic, Standard, and Enhanced Payroll.

 

In case you need to contact one of our Payroll Support Specialists, I'm also adding the steps that will help you in the future:

 

  1. Open QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Click the Help tab at the top menu bar.
  3. Click QuickBooks Desktop Help.

Please reach out to me if you need additional assistance with updating the principal information. Wishing you all the best.

I put the wrong ss# and birthday for the owner/principal when setting up direct deposit.  How can I change this?

You can edit the employee's Direct Deposit information by following these quick steps:

 

  1. Select Employees and choose Employee Center to open your employee list.
  2. Double-click the employee's name.
  3. In the Personal tab, change the Date of Birth and Social Security No. fields.
  4. Click the OK button.
