This is not the impression we want you to experience where your subscription will upgrade without your permission, @suzannesturrock.
When upgrading your Payroll plan to Advance, the primary admin/bill payer will need to contact us. We will send a declaration for the primary admin/bill payer to read and sign. Once the Declaration has been returned the migration can be requested.

Thank I have done all of that and logged it with the help desk, there is an issue that they are looking at but I did not ask for this upgrade, I am the bill payer and the user. I need to run my next month end payroll soon and keep getting fobbed off by quick books saying there is an issue and they can not tell me when it will be fixed. This is not good enough in my opinion. I have people to pay!
I have contacted the help desk three times and they are aware of the issue.
I have no data in my payroll, we were quite happy on basic then it just switched over with out us requesting or paying for this service.
Thanks for contacting our team to report this, Suzanne - we appreciate the urgency of the issue and our engineering team are completing further investigations with expectations to fix within 24 - 48 hours. Please monitor your email inbox for further updates and notice of resolution. :folded_hands:
We'd want to have this sorted out for you, jamurjo.
As previously shared in the previous responses, subscriptions are changed when there's a request from the primary admin. The system is not designed to automatically upgrade accounts without a declaration being signed.
I recommend contacting our payroll support team for us to double check what happened, we need to take a look and verify your account. They can review your subscription history and check why it was upgraded to Advanced Payroll.
Here's how to reach out to them:
