Pay Contractors Through Direct Deposit

SOLVEDby QuickBooksIntuit Online Payroll18Updated September 02, 2021

When you add a contractor to your Intuit Full Service Payroll account, you choose from two pay methods:

  • Paper check (selected by default)
  • Direct deposit

Note: You can send payments to a contractor's chequeing or a savings account — you cannot split a direct deposit transaction into two accounts.

Set a contractor up for direct deposit

  1. Get the contractor's bank account information
    • Account type (chequeing or savings)
    • Routing and account numbers (the contractor can get these from a sample check)
  2. Select the Employees tab.
  3. Scroll down and select the name of the contractor.
  4. Select Edit, and then Edit again in the Pay method field.
  5. Select Direct Deposit in the Pay method drop-down.
  6. Enter the contractor's bank account account info.
  7. Select OK.

The next time you pay the contractor, you can now pay by direct deposit.
