How do I add a new company payroll key for a new EIN under my QB enhanced Accountant for payroll?

Hello, @richard-whitlock.

 

Let's first ensure to add a new EIN to the company file. Once completed, we can now add the new service key and complete the payroll setup.

 

Here's how you can add the new FEIN (Federal Employer Identification Number):

  1. Go to the Company menu.
  2. Choose My Company.
  3. In the My Company window, click the Pencil Icon.
  4. From the Company Information pop-out, select the Company Identification tab.
  5. Enter the new EIN.
  6. Click Ok.

 

Once done, we can now activate the new payroll service key in the company file. 

 

Here's how:

  1. Open the new company file.
  2. Go to the Employees menu.
  3. Choose Payroll.
  4. Select Enter Payroll Service KeyEnter payroll service key in QuickBooks Desktop
  5. From the QuickBooks Service Keys window, click the Add button. remove payroll service key in QuickBooks Desktop
