Aligning P60's in QuickBooks Desktop

Refer to these troubleshooting steps if you print  P60's and the data do not properly align. A recently upgraded QuickBooks version may revert printer settings back to its default.

Important: HMRC stationery is the only compatible stationery with QuickBooks Desktop.

To resolve this, you need to adjust your printer settings.

  1. Open QuickBooks.
  2. Go to the File menu and choose Printer Setup.
  3. Select the Form Name drop-down arrow and choose P60.
  4. Select the Printer Type drop-down arrow and choose the correct stationery.
  5. Select the Options button to the right of the printer name.
    1. Check that paper size is A4.
    2. Select OK to return to Printer Setup window.
  6. In the Style section, select either:
    • HM Revenue & Customs / Intuit Preprinted forms (P14/P60s) or;
    • Laser Mailer P60 (self sealing)
  7. Select OK.
  8. Do a test print.

If the form is still out of alignment, open the Printer setup window again (see steps 1 to 3 above).

  1. On the right of the Printer Setup window, select Align.
  2. Click the Vertical Up/Down arrows and/or the Horizontal Left/Right arrows accordingly or key in the values manually. Select OK to return to Printer Setup.
  3. Select OK.
  4. Do another test print and adjust the alignment further if required.
