Desktop payroll is integrated into desktop QB, in most cases. As long as you have your allowed second copy of QB software installed on your laptop you will have access to the integrated payroll in the company file. (you will need to back up company *.qbw from work desktop to be restored on laptop - you cannot just move the file.

Hi Irlemieux,

 

John is correct, depending on which QuickBooks Desktop product you purchased you can use it on your laptop from home. 

 

QuickBooks Desktop provides single or multi-user access. The number of computers on which you can install QuickBooks depends on the terms of your license.

 

Single User:

If you purchased Single-User, your license entitles you to install the software on a total of two computers, provided that you own both systems.

 

Multi-User:

If you purchased this license, you'll be able to use up to five different computers and five different users. 

 

John also correctly mentioned that you'll need to back up your company file. Here is a link that breaks down that process if you're interested. If you'd like to find out more about the products and the differences they offer, I would suggest reaching out to our sales team. Here's a link to the Website where you can contact them via the internet or call them during their operating hours. 

 

If you need anything else, You can reach out here. Best of luck, and stay safe during this trying time!
