State Unemploy now lets you upload reports on employees.  I have two company files for one account number (2 locations).  How can I combine the reports in order to be able to upload the information?  I have tried to manually add them in excel (copy and paste) and that does not work.  Get multiple errors.  I cannot change anything without getting errors.  However to manually enter it is AWFUL!  Anyone know how I can combine the SU1 reports together from two separate Quickbooks files?

Re: Unemployment

Hello there, @Staceym1.


Thank you for taking the time posting in the Community. I'd be happy to help share some ways to get the information you need to file SUI payroll forms to the state agency's website. 


QuickBooks cannot generate reports from another company file. In your case, you need to gather and combine payroll data manually to file the form. 


To start, let's make sure you meet the state requirements when creating and submitting the form, like the file format. This information varies for each state.


After that, you can create the report in each company file and print it. Following the format, create the file and enter the data manually. Finally, send it to the agency. 


You may want to check the following article for more details about creating the file, as well as state-specific information about submitting it: E-file or submit state unemployment filings.

Keep me posted on how it goes. I'll be happy to help you further with submitting payroll forms and get you back to business. Have a great day ahead.
