Set up employees for direct deposit

When you add an employee to your Intuit Full Service Payroll account, you choose their pay method:

You can send paychecks to a employee's checking or a savings account. You can split a check into two accounts, or deposit a partial paycheck into one account with the remainder paid on a paper check.

Set an employee up for direct deposit

  1. Click the Employees tab.
  2. Scroll down and click the name of the employee, and then click Edit.
  3. Click Edit in the Pay method field.
  4. Select Direct Deposit from the Pay method drop-down.
  5. Enter the employee's bank account info and the amount, if the paycheck is deposited into two accounts.
  6. Click OK.

The next time you pay the employee, the pay method will default to direct deposit. If you need to create a paper check for an employee who's set up for direct deposit, you can change the pay method from direct deposit to paper check for one payroll. Changing the pay method for one payroll doesn't change the default pay method.
