QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll for Accountants

I am new to QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll for Accountants and am trying to understand best practices and how this works.  I have processed payroll for many years for my clients on their computers using their separately purchased payroll subscription.  I am trying to understand how this Enhanced Payroll for Accountants works and can find no information on line.  I am also trying to understand what payroll subscription my clients should maintain if they want to prepare their own paychecks at their location.  I could go to their location, access their computer remotely, or obtain a backup copy of their company file and restore on my computer to process their quarterly reports.   Any guidance would be appreciated.

QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll for Accountants

Hi Nick.  Thanks for sharing the basics on QuickBooks Desktop but I have used QuickBooks since it was launched in the early 1990's and I am very familiar with the programs.  I have set up and used payroll within QuickBooks for many years.  I am trying to obtain guidance on the QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll for Accountants.  I purchased that product earlier this year and can find no tutorials on how Accountants use and manage the product.  I have only three Customer EIN's on my subscription and they are all clients where I keep their QB Desktop file solely on my computer.  I have a handful of clients that have a current enhanced payroll subscription for their desktop program and I do their quarterly/ year-end payroll reporting.  I want to offer them options to save money by changing to the basic payroll subscription if possible.  I also want to be able to expand my client base for payroll processing and reporting.  If you can point me in the direction where I might find assistance with QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll for Accountants, I would be grateful.

Hello tamilligan,

 

Thank you for posting in the Community today!

 

The QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Enhanced for Accountants works the same as the non-accountant version. However, this gives you the option to add more EIN or companies under it. This means, your clients can use your subscription so they can enjoy the payroll service in their QuickBooks. You can read more about adding an EIN in this article here.
