Frequently asked questions

  • 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 functionality you will need. Look at our list of features to decide the best payroll software for your business. If you’re unsure feel free to give us a call on 0808 168 9533.
  • Do I need to calculate tax & NI deductions?

    No, QuickBooks will calculate the tax & NI deductions. We will also calculate pensions & student loan deductions as necessary.
  • Does QuickBooks submit my reports to HMRC?

    Yes, you can choose for QuickBooks to either automatically submit your FPS to HMRC when you run your pay run, or if you prefer we can create the report for you and you can click the button to submit it to HMRC. Advanced Payroll can also automatically submit your EPS filings for you (if relevant) or again you can choose to have QuickBooks create them for you and you click the submit button, Standard Payroll will create the EPS for you for you to click the submit button.
