17 Nov Enhanced Payroll Plus for Accountants
Enhanced Payroll Plus for Accountants
The enhanced payroll plus for accountants includes all the features of the enhanced payroll service plus the ability to process payroll for up to 50 clients with a single subscription.
Note: The additional EINs must be processed from within the same licensed copy of the QuickBooks software. I.e. the Accountant must prepare the payroll processing in their office with their copy of the QuickBooks software.
The telephone number to call to receive the key code to add the client is:
Monday – Friday
8 am – 5 pm
When you call be sure to have the client’s tax identification number ready. The key code number is entered by choosing Employees > Employer Services > Add/Change Service
TRICK: Client State Payroll Returns Only
If the client has their own payroll tax subscription (because they are preparing the payroll net checks in their own office) it is possible for the Accountant to call and get the key code and update the QuickBooks data file from the client to prepare the state returns.
We used this method recently with a client on an older version of QuickBooks so when we received the file we converted it to version 2005 and entered the key code to do our work. The downside is that we cannot send the file back to the client since they are on an older version, but we can automate the transfer of any additional work we did by using one of several transaction copier tools that are available.
