The case of a Queensland councillor accused of siphoning more than $180,000 from an engineering company has been adjourned until February 6.

Stacey McIntosh did not appear during the brief hearing in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

McIntosh, who was elected to the Logan City Council last year, is facing one count of stealing as a servant after a five-month investigation by fraud and cyber detectives.

She is accused of redirecting client invoice payments and unauthorised refunds from Fortuna Engineering based at Cooper Plains, on Brisbane's southside, into her own bank accounts between June 2014 and July 2016.

The Division 6 councillor agreed to stand down from her civic duties after being charged.
