Frequently asked questions
I want to offer a payroll service to my clients but I’m not sure how to do payroll. Can QuickBooks walk me through the process?
Yes. Our intuitive payroll tools make it easy for you to be your clients’ payroll manager and if you need a step-by-step guide to the process, our how-to videos and webinars are here to help.
Will I need to do the calculations for staff on different hourly rates?
No. With QuickBooks Payroll you don’t need to worry about how to work out hourly pay. Just enter your employee’s rate and the number of hours worked and our built-in pay calculator will do the rest. Our Advanced payroll software lets employees enter their own timesheets, ready for approval, which makes payroll management even easier.
Will I need to get separate payslip software?
No, payslips can be created for every employee in both QuickBooks Payroll products. Simply print them off or email them to members of staff. With our Advanced payroll software, employees can download their own payslips through the employee portal.
What’s the difference between HMRC’s free payroll software and the QuickBooks payroll system?
HMRC's PAYE tool offers basic features (such as payroll tax) and is only suitable for a small number of employees. It does not support the creation of payslips or auto enrolment. If you’re looking for an Online Payroll product with more features to help you manage payroll, check out QuickBooks Payroll functionality.
Should I go for QuickBooks Standard or Advanced Payroll?
It depends on the number of clients you’re managing payroll for and the complexity of their business. Look at our list of features to decide the best payroll software for your business.
