To set up a direct deposit of your payroll or any other payment requires you to contact the company and complete the paperwork. They will normally want a voided check from your checkbook containing your bank's routing number and your account number. The routing number is the first set of numbers on the bottom left of your check. The routing number is followed by your account and the number of the check itself.
