All payments should be made through your personal bank account and not your business. This is because your S-Corp business is a flow through entity, and so all the profits ‘flow through’ to you personally. If you need funds from your business account to cover this payment, please transfer the amount needed from your business account to your personal account first and categorize it as a ‘shareholder distribution’ in QuickBooks.
