Multiple Direct Deposits

To set up direct deposits to multiple accounts for the same employee, you can divide it either by a percentage of the check or by a set dollar amount:

Percent Split

If you’re splitting Direct Deposit equally into two accounts:

  1. Enter 50 in the first account.
  2. Enter 100 in the second account.

This will put 50% in the first account and the remaining balance (100%) in the second account.

[If you were to put 50 in the second account, it would only deposit 50% of the remaining balance and the employee would receive a paper check for the remaining balance.]

Dollar Amount Split

To Direct Deposit a specific dollar amount to an account:

  1. Select Flat Split from the dropdown.
  2. Enter the Amount to be deposited in the first account.
  3. Enter 100 in the second account in order for 100% of the remaining balance to be deposited in the second account.
  4. Save.

Ex: $210 (Flat Split) in First Account and 100% (Percent Split) in Second account.
