If you 're talking about underhanded, like say a payment under the table.you could also say debajo de la mesa - just as common there as here. Good luck!

There are several options:

bajo la mesa
debajo de la mesa
por debajo de la mesa

I suggest you check the Internet to see how these different sentences are used.

Un saludo.
