Quickbooks Desktop Pro with Enhanced Payroll, 2018

The description of the product says there is a free year-subscription for the enhanced payroll, including 1 employees and that I can add more employees for a nominal monthly fee. I will have the desktop version so how can I add more employees (3 more)?

Delighted to hear again from you, @may17.

 

QuickBooks is designed to be a one-stop-shop for business owners to help achieve a better work/life balance. I'm here to share with you additional information about the fee for every additional employee in QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll subscription. 

 

For starters, if you have more than one employee, you'll have to pay $2 for every additional employee per month. Once you've activated payroll, you can proceed with adding each employee's information.

 

To activate payroll service in QuickBooks, here's how:

  1. Go to Employees. 
  2. Choose Payroll.
  3. Select Install Payroll from Box.
  4. Enter your Payroll License and Product Information page.
  5. Click Continue.
  6. Type in your Company's Payroll Legal Information.
  7. Enter your Billing Information.
  8. Click Continue.
  9. Sign in to your Intuit Account.
  10. Click the Start Payroll button in the Confirmation.

Once activated, let's follow the steps below to set up your payroll and tax information

  1. Click Employees.
  2. Select Payroll Setup.
  3. Follow the rest of the on-screen instruction to complete the setup process.

Lastly, here's how to add your employee's information:

  1. Go to Employees.
  2. Choose Employee Center.
  3. Select New Employee.
  4. In the Employee Information window, enter the following information:
    • Personal
    • Address & Contact
    • Additional Info
    • Payroll Info
    • Employment Info
    • Worker's Comp
  5. Click Ok.

To enter accurate information, you can refer to your employee's W4 form.

 

That should do it!

You'll add them on the Employee list, where all employees are added.

Thank you for your answer. And what about the “nominal fee” that I need to pay after 1 employee? How does it work?

Thank you for your answer. And what about the “nominal fee” that I need to pay after the first employee. Do you know how does it work? Will the system allow me add the employees without the connection to Quickbooks (online) as I will have only the desktop version?
