Re: Why cant I add contractor? Why dont I have workers tab?

Hello, Troni,

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community. I can share some information about adding a contractor.

 

In QuickBooks Online Canada, the option to add a contractor is only available if you are subscribed to QuickBooks Online Advanced.

 

To know more about this process, you can read this article: How to add a new employee or contractor in QuickBooks Online Advanced Payroll.

 

If you have any other questions in managing your account, please feel free to visit the Community again. Have a great day!

Hello again, Troni,

 

Let's check your subscription for us to know why you're not having an option to add a contractor.

  1. Go to Gear icon at the top.
  2. Click Account and Settings.
  3. Select Billing & Subscription.
  4. In the QuickBooks section, select Upgrade. If you don't see the upgrade, you're already using QuickBooks Online Advanced, our most advanced offering.
  5. You’ll see options for upgrading, along with features and pricing. Select Upgrade for the product you want.
  6. If prompted, enter payment information.
  7. To confirm the upgrade and new billing rate, select Confirm Upgrade.

For the detailed steps on how to add a contractor, here's what you'll need to do:

  1. Click Employees in the left navigation menu.
  2. Select Add new employee to get started.
  3. Enter the First Name and Last Name.
  4. Select Contractor.
  5. You are also asked Have you paid this employee or contractor this year (2019)?
  6. Select Yes or No.

For future help, you can check our Community page for some tips and tricks in using QuickBooks accounting and bookkeeping features: QBO Self-help.

 

That's it! Thanks for upgrading, Troni. You can always count on me if you have any additional questions about adding a contractor. Best wishes.
