QuickBooks allows you to set up, edit and remove direct deposit service for your organization’s employees after you have activated QuickBooks direct deposit feature in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll for your organization.
If an employee of your company wants direct deposit, he or she must, first of all, fill out a direct deposit authorization form and give you a voided check from his or her bank account. It should be a check and not a deposit slip. The direct deposit authorization form is available from the Intuit website. You are not required to submit the direct deposit authorization form and the voided check given by your employee to QuickBooks Desktop, as these are for record purpose only.

How to set up direct deposit in QuickBooks?

You should consider the information given below before proceeding with the steps required for QuickBooks direct deposit set up for employees.
Direct deposit bank account information of your employee must be always entered from a check. A deposit slip must never be used as deposit slip’s information is not valid for direct deposit purpose. Account information that you have to enter must be of the U.S., as outside the U.S., different automated clearing house processes are employed, and these external processes do not correlate with QuickBooks Desktop.
In case of payment cards, you should contact the card provider for seeking account number information and routing. If you want to use a money market account of your employee for the purpose of direct deposit through QuickBooks, you have to make sure that the money market account of your employee accepts Automated Clearing House (ACH) transactions. Your company’s employees have to check with their banks whether their money market accounts are savings or checking.
If in case, your employee’s account is a savings account, then he or she has to get the account routing number from his or her bank. If your employee’s bank tags your employee’s account like a money market account, you have to tell your employee that only checking or savings accounts are accepted by QuickBooks Desktop, and so he or she should select checking account.
