Please check this article on how to check the status of the payroll you have sent, and verify that the employee was included in the payroll: Employee did not receive direct deposit created in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll.


You can also refer to this article to see steps on how to remove direct deposit permanently from an employee's profile: Set up, edit, and remove direct deposit for employees in QuickBooks Desktop. This also provides information on how to disable direct deposit temporarily on a paycheck only.
