Accountants: QuickBooks Online Enhanced Payroll and QuickBooks Online Full Service Payroll pricing update

Why is pricing changing and why is there a new pricing tier? 
To make services more attractive for emerging businesses, we’ve lowered the monthly base fee for existing users while increasing the monthly per employee fee. Also, to support you as you grow your business, once you reach 11 employees the monthly per employee fee drops for each additional employee you add to the service.

What extra value am I getting for the price increase? 
We are constantly reinvesting to keep our product compliant with a continually evolving tax and regulatory landscape.  In addition to this, we also continually innovate in order to deliver best-in-class payroll services. Examples of new features include:

  1. Same Day Direct Deposit: Keep your money until 7 AM PT on the day of Payroll with free same-day direct deposit.
  2. User permissions:  Pay information can now be set at the user level, to limit visibility to sensitive information for additional QuickBooks users.
  3. Employee summaries.  Detailed payroll summary reports by employee.

When does the new pricing go into effect? 
To align with the value of our payroll offerings, direct pricing for QuickBooks Online Enhanced Payroll and QuickBooks Online Full Service Payroll will change on November 1, 2018 and wholesale pricing will change on January 1, 2019. Accountants who have signed up for QuickBooks Online Accountant on or after June 1, 2018 will be excluded from this pricing change.

How long until the next price increase? 
Price increases are not tied to a calendar schedule, but we do understand that you may base the cost of your services on the price of this product.  We’ll continue to give you advance notice of any changes we make to your pricing.
