Direct Deposit fees basic payroll

I've been looking for the fee schedule for direct deposit and haven't been able to find the information. I'm using basic payroll on desktop. Can anyone help me with what the fees would be to start using direct deposit?

Thanks!

Your confusion ends here, @JHelming.

 

Allow me to fill you in on everything about the direct deposit fees for QuickBooks Desktop with Basic payroll.

 

There will be a standard fee of $1.75 for every Direct Deposit transaction processed in QuickBooks for employees and vendors for existing customers using the old payroll services. However, if you currently subscribe to the new payroll offered by Intuit, it does not have Direct Deposit fees for employees. But there will be additional fees that may apply to the number of employees you process payroll at a given month period, which is $2/employee per month. 

 

Besides, if you're processing Direct Deposit for 1099 contractors (which isn't included with the per-employee fee), you'll still get a $1.75 fee for every Direct Deposit check paid towards the vendor account.

Have the fees increased?

I am running Quickbooks Enhanced Payroll for Accountants and I just ran two checks for my employer and the fee shows as $3.71.  It used to be $ 3.50.

Thank you

I can provide additional information about the payroll price increase, @jlahrens.

 

Price increases are a normal part of running a business to keep up with the costs. To provide an efficient, reliable, easy to use payroll service, we continually make investments to maintain and improve the product and ensure that it stays compliant. However, there’s no change yet in the Per Employee Fee.

 

To further check this price increase, I suggest reaching out to our Customer Support team. They can validate this increase in a secure environment and explain to you this charge. 

 

You can follow the steps below on how to reach them:

 

  1. From your QuickBooks Desktop account, click the Help menu at the top.  
  2. Click the QuickBooks Desktop Help menu and select QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Provide some information about this concern on the search box.
  4. Click the Contact Us link at the bottom of the window. 
  5. You'll now be provided with a few support options.  
  6. Select Get a call to arrange a callback from a support agent. Or Start a chat to chat with them directly.  

 

Here's the contact QuickBooks Desktop support article for more information about this.

 

I'm always here if you have questions about your account and or anything else. Just let me know by leaving a reply below. Take care and have a great rest of the day!

I have had a basic payroll subscription for 10 years or longer - how can I tell if I am subscribed to the old payroll or the new payroll?

Nice to have you join this thread, @jaybonk.

 

I’d be glad to share with you some information on how to set up your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) software for Direct Deposit (DD).

 

To set up DD for your company, you’ll need to prepare your:

 

  • Business name, address and EIN
  • Principal officer social security number, birth date and home address
  • Online bank credentials or bank routing and account numbers

 

Then connect your bank for DD. To be guided through the whole process, you can refer to the steps outlined in this article: Set up your company payroll for direct deposit.

 

Also, in regards to knowing your payroll subscription, you can refer to this link for reference: QuickBooks Payroll Services and Features for QuickBooks Desktop.

 

In case you want to change your payroll service, you can utilize this resource for the detailed steps: Change Payroll Service.

 

Let me know if there’s anything else you need assistance with in setting up your DD or managing your payroll service. I’ll be around ready to lend a helping hand. Have a good one and keep safe!
