    How to cancel or stop a Direct Deposit paycheck

    Article ID: 1000477

    Overview

    If you need to stop the processing of a Direct Deposit paycheck that you sent to Intuit, be aware of the following:

    • Once the Direct Deposit has offloaded for ACH processing, Intuit can no longer stop the Direct Deposit.
    • Off load time for ACH processing of your Direct Deposit happens at exactly 5:00 p.m. Pacific time, 2 banking days before the paycheck date.

    Example: If the date of the check is Friday, you can cancel or stop it any time before 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

    Voiding the Direct Deposit paycheck in QuickBooks and sending that Void to Intuit after offload time will not stop the Direct Deposit from posting to your employees bank account.

    To Check The Status Of The Payroll:

    On the top menu bar, choose Employees> My Payroll Service> Acount/Billing Information.

    Click View Payroll Activity in the direct deposit section.

    Enter your Direct Deposit PIN.

    Look for the payroll transmission with the check that needs to be stopped.

    To Cancel Or Void The Paycheck:

    This must be done before 5:00 p.m. Pacific time, and 2 banking days before the paycheck date.

    On the top menu bar, choose Employees > Edit/Void Paychecks.

    On the Edit/Void Paychecks screen, change both the Show paychecks through/from dates to the date of the check, and press Tab on your keyboard.

    Click the check in question, and click Void.

    In the pop-up box, enter 'yes' and click Void.

    If you agree, select the checkbox saying you agree to the terms and conditions of voiding the paycheck.

    Repeat the previous steps as necessary to include all checks that need to be voided.

    Once the check(s) have been voided, close the Edit/Void Paychecks window.

    On the top menu bar, click on Employees, and click Send Payroll Data.

    Click Send. You will note that there are no direct deposit checks to send. This step is done in order to let QuickBooks connect with the server to let it know there has been a check modified and will be removed from direct deposit.

    Be sure the paycheck has been voided by looking in your bank register that is used to pay employees. The memo line will show a modification has been made to the check(s). The memo line may say: "voided paycheck Payroll Service Funds Recovered." On the payroll liability check, the memo line may say: "Adjusted for voided paychecks." No confirmation report will be sent for voided paychecks.

    Your QuickBooks confirmation report will not show whether you were able to successfully cancel the Direct Deposit. However, in the items to send screen, instead of saying MODIFIED paychecks, it will now say VOIDED paychecks and the total number of the voided checks.

    If you need assistance in stopping the Direct Deposit payroll before offload time, please contact us.

    It would be helpful for you to ask is this issue before or after submitting the paycheck. I want to change a direct deposit paycheck to manual BEFORE I submitted it, but after I created it. I'm having trouble finding what to do.

    Hi Linda,

    I am an Intuit employee and saw your comment. You can try using the steps in the article "Change a Direct Deposit paycheck to a regular paycheck" http://payroll.intuit.com/support/kb/1000497.html to change your employee's direct deposit into a manual check. I have also added a link to this article in the Related Articles section above. I hope this helps. Thank you for posting a comment.
