See what you can get with QuickBooks Online Payroll Premium

Learn about what you can do with QuickBooks Online Payroll Premium.

You may notice a couple of new things in your QuickBooks. But it’s more than your average update. QuickBooks Online Payroll Full Service is now QuickBooks Online Payroll Premium. And with the new name, you also get a couple of new powerful features.

Here are a few things to check out.

Get your employees to track their own time

Instead of manually entering time cards, your employees can clock in or out, anywhere, using their phone or computer. Once it comes time to run payroll, you can review, edit, and approve employee hours right inside QuickBooks.

Compare and set up health benefits for your team

You can get health benefits for your team and have the deductions automatically added at payroll. You can compare benefit plans and choose one based on what’s important for you. Once you’ve chosen a plan, you’ll fill in a 1-page application, invite your employees to enroll, and upload a few company documents. We will show you how to find those documents in the enrollment process.

Get your HR questions answered

With the QuickBooks HR support center, you’ll find guides for hiring and onboarding, termination and onboarding template letters, sample job descriptions, and information on federal and state tax laws

Set up your Auto Payroll

If your company only has salaried employees on direct deposit, you can run payroll automatically without you even logging in. Once you set up your Auto Payroll, you’ll be able to approve and, if needed, update your paychecks before they’re sent.
