Can I set up another payroll for another company that we just started up using the same quick books program that I already have
Let me be the first to welcome you in the Intuit Community, hill tow.
The desktop version allows you to create multiple company files at the same time connect them with the Payroll option. Yes, you can use the exact QuickBooks program to set up the feature for another company.
If you haven't created the data file, let's make one from scratch. Here's how:
Once done, you can now add the EIN to the company file. For detailed steps on how to activate payroll, follow the steps here and proceed to the QuickBooks Desktop 2017, 2018, and 2019 section.
This should help set up the payroll service.
Please update me on the outcome after trying the steps. I'll be right here if you need further assistance.
