I was told to contact a payroll expert to do a legal name change - who can help me with that?

I can guide you in changing your legal business name, icamillesikorsky.

 

If you're using QuickBooks Online Payroll Enhanced, we can simply change your business legal name in the Payroll Settings. Before diving in, we'll have to turn off the E-File & Pay feature first. I'll guide you how:

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Choose Payroll Settings.
  3. Select E-file and e-pay.
  4. Select Manually with paper coupons.
  5. Click Next.

Once done, we can now change your legal business name:

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Select Payroll Settings.
  3. Choose General Tax Information under Taxes.
  4. Enter the correct Filing Name, then click OK when you're done.

Then, let's change your "doing business as" name:

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Select Payroll Settings.
  3. Choose Contact Information, under Business Information,
  4. Enter the Business Name, then click OK when you're done.

Lastly, we'll have to re-enroll to the E-File & Pay feature then send the authorization form.

 

If you're using QuickBooks Online Payroll Full Service, you'll have to get in touch with our payroll experts and sign the updated legal documents. Here's how to connect with us:

  1. Click the Help icon.
  2. Hit Contact Us.
  3. Enter "Business legal name change" in the description.
  4. Select Let's talk.
  5. Choose Get a callback or Start messaging.

I encourage checking out our support hours to ensure that we address your concerns on time.

 

You can refer to this article to know the different documents that you need to sign: Update your business info in online payroll.
