Change your billing cycle

Learn how to change your billing cycle in QuickBooks Online.

Switch to monthly or annual billing. Here’s how.


  • If you’re currently on annual, you can only switch within 30 days before your next billing date.
  • If prompted, resubscribe to your old billing cycle before switching to the new one.

Can I change the billing cycle for payroll?

You can’t switch your QuickBooks Online Payroll subscription to annual billing since your payroll subscription charges you monthly for each active employee and any additional states you run payroll for.
