Invite employees to QuickBooks Workforce to see payslips, P60s and more

SOLVEDby QuickBooks254Updated 4 days ago

With QuickBooks Workforce, employees can access their payslips and P60 documents whenever they need them. After you run payroll, payslips are automatically published to QuickBooks Workforce.

Then, your employees will get an email notification letting them know that their payslips and documents are ready for them to view, print and download. But before they can do this, you'll need to invite them via email first.

In this article, you'll learn how to:
