Interested in QuickBooks Online Automatic Payroll?

You are among the select customers to be invited to sign up for early access to QuickBooks Payroll Auto Payroll offered at no additional cost! Please keep an eye out in QuickBooks Payroll to enable Auto Payroll in early September.

 

If you have all salaried employees on direct deposit (more eligibility criteria below)* with QuickBooks Payroll’s Auto Payroll feature you will be able to run your payroll automatically so your employees are paid on time every pay period without you having to sign in.

 

Here’s how it works:

Once Auto Payroll is enabled:

 

1.  4 business days before payday - You receive a brief payroll summary (including pay period, number of employees being paid, and payroll amount) sent to your email. You can sign in to QuickBooks Payroll to view a more detailed payroll view (per employee) if you wish.

 

2.  2 business days before payday - Make any changes to your Auto Payroll by 5 PM PT.

 

3.  On payday - Money is  automatically withdrawn from your bank account and employees are paid on time, as long as you continue to meet eligibility requirements.

 

Here's how to enable Auto Payroll (in early September)

 

You can enable Auto Payroll from one of four places in the product:

 

1.  Overview page:  In the "STATUS" box, select "Learn More" and follow the prompts

Note: You can run payroll manually for any pay period you choose. Auto Payroll will be paused for that pay period and then resume from the next one. 

 

Cancel Auto Payroll 

You can cancel Auto Payroll anytime before the edit deadline (in the example above Wednesday at 5 PM PT) in ‘Payroll Settings’. You will be responsible for running payroll manually on time to meet your payday after turning off Auto Payroll.

 

*Eligibility criteria 

  • All salaried employees
  • All employees on direct deposit
  • Setup fully complete and E-services enabled
  • No insufficient funds hold in the last 6 months
  • Company is not multi-state employees
  • Commission only paychecks (no salary, only commission)

Note:

As the employer, you will be responsible for making any changes before the edit deadline should any of your employees go on vacation, leave the company, or if anything else changes with your business. This helps us make sure we automatically withdraw the correct amount to pay your team and can keep you from mistakenly overpaying your employees.

 

 

Please send an email to QBOAutoPayrollBeta@intuit.com if you have any questions.
Spots are limited, so be sure to enable Auto Payroll as soon as you have a chance.
