This week’s question comes from George, a business owner. We’re planning an end-of-summer party with bonuses for our employees. I’d rather give them live checks for their bonuses. Can I stop an employee’s direct deposit one time only? Answer: You can easily stop direct deposit for any or all employees whether you submit your payroll online or by some other method. If you want to stop direct deposit for one or more employees online, simply check the “Stop Direct Deposit” box for selected employees on the Pay Detail section. If you want to stop direct deposit for all employees online, simply check the “Stop Direct Deposit” box on the Dates section. If you still don’t submit payroll online, indicate on the time sheet those employees for whom you wish to stop direct deposit. You may also contact Vision Payroll by telephone or e-mail to stop direct deposit. Using any of these methods will only stop direct deposit for that paycheck or payroll and direct deposit will become active on the next paycheck or payroll.
