0 0 2255


QuickBooks Online Payroll constantly strives to make your life easier and provide you peace of mind by ensuring you comply with payroll rules and regulations. We've recently added a new feature that allows you to quickly add employees by uploading an excel spreadsheet to save time!

The business owner, Venky, will walk you through this new feature in three easy steps to show you how it works. Only US-Based QuickBooks Online employers can use this feature and must have five (5) or more employees. 


Step 1: Preparing the Spreadsheet

In this first part, we'll go over what reports you can use from your existing payroll provider or a spreadsheet template that you can use.

Next, you'll upload the spreadsheet and map the column headers to fields in QuickBooks Online Payroll, so we know where to put the data.
