Processing Payroll When Server is down

Hi there, toni1.


Processing payroll using QuickBooks Desktop Assisted Payroll requires an internet connection. Since your server may be down for several days, you'll want to reach our QuickBooks Team so they become aware of what may happen with your server. This way, they can set an early payroll or check for ways on how to process payroll given the situation.


For instructions on how to reach them, follow the steps below:


  1. Go to this link.
  2. Click the Contact us button.
  3. Enter your company information.
  4. Click Submit.
