Add payroll service key

Hi renetyler,


To add the payroll service key, you’ll want to add the client’s EIN to your subscription first.


Here’s how:


  1. Select Employees, then Payroll.
  2. Choose to Use My Existing Payroll Service.
  3. Under Identify Subscription, choose Use Subscription Number XXXXXXX (Payroll Subscription Version).
  4. Hit Next.
  5. Select Next to add the company EIN.
  6. Click Print or Return to QuickBooks Desktop. The Validating Payroll Subscription window opens, and the service is added automatically.
  7. Verify the Service Key.

You can refer to this article for additional information about adding EIN: Add an EIN to existing Payroll Subscription.


I also added helpful articles for your future reference in case you need some information about managing QuickBooks.


I’m always here if you need additional help.
