Change an employee's direct deposit info

Learn how to update the direct deposit bank account for one of your employees.

Once you've set up direct deposit for an employee, you might need to update their bank account if something changes. Here's what to do for each version of payroll we offer.

You can update the employee's bank account information on the same page where you set it up.

  1. Go to Employees and select Employee Center to open your employee list.
  2. Select the employee's name.
  3. Select the Payroll Info tab.
  4. Select the Direct Deposit button.
  5. In the Direct Deposit window, select Use Direct Deposit for [employee's name].
  6. Select to deposit the paycheck into one or two accounts.
  7. Enter the employee's financial institution information (Bank Name, Routing No., Account No., and Account Type).
  8. Select OK to save the information.
  9. Enter your direct deposit PIN when prompted.

You need to edit the bank account info before you create a paycheck for the employee. Paychecks you create before you update the employee's account will be deposited to the old bank account. To avoid this, you can delete and recreate the paychecks before sending them to Intuit, or you can:

  1. Open the paycheck and go to the Paycheck Detail window.
  2. Uncheck the Use Direct Deposit option on the paycheck details , then select Save > Save & Close.

Open the paycheck again and select Use Direct Deposit. Be sure to select Save.

  1. Payroll menu, then select Employees.
  2. Select the name of the employee, then select Edit ✎ beside How do you want to pay [employee]?
  3. Enter the new bank account information.
  4. Select Done.

  1. Go to Employees.
  2. Next to the employee's name, under Pay Method, select DD.
  3. Enter the new bank account information.
  4. Select OK.
