When I go to Workers > Employees > Add Employee, the option to 'enter an email' is not there. I can not find EESS. I am using QBO Plus

I am trying to use EESS to get a new employee's information and add them to payroll.  I am following the EESS instructions, but when I go to 'Add Employee' there is not option to 'enter an email to start the process.  I am using QBO Plus.

Hey there, keneb.

 

Thanks for visiting the Community for support. I'd be glad to assist you with adding an email to your employee's profile.

 

In order to have this option, you will need to complete the payroll set up first.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. In the left navigation bar, click Workers and select Employees.
  2. Click Add employee.
  3. Enter information about the employee
  4. Enter the employee's name.
  5. Click Enter W-4 form, and then enter the employee's withholding information.
  6. Select how often to include this employee in a payroll run.
  7. Select how you pay this employee, and enter how much. Click Add additional pay types to add a second hourly rate or other types of pay such as Overtime or Sick Pay.
  8. Under Does this employee have any deductions?, click the pencil icon to edit a deduction, or click Add a new deduction to add one.
  9. To change your bank info or select another way to pay your employee, click the pencil icon under How do you want to pay this employee?.
  10. Click Done.

If you still don't have this option, I recommend speaking with a Payroll Specialist. Agents have the necessary tools to look into your account to locate where the problem is stemming from.

I am trying to use the EESS function that I find in 'HELP' to have the new employee fill in all the information required to add them to payroll.  After clicking on the 'Add Employee' button, there option to send the information request to an email is not available.

Hello @keneb.

 

Thank you for contacting the Community. I'll be happy to explain why the option to send the information request is not available.

 

There are two common reasons for this. If you have added an accountant or input payroll history, you'd need to add the information for your employees.

SterlingD, thank you for providing support.

Followup Question: Why would adding an accountant remove the EESS option?

Hello, TheKK.

 

When you add an accountant, they have the option to enter your employee's information as well. They are also like a company's admin.
