I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it is today to set up Payroll in Quickbooks. Simply set up your business, verify the principal’s identity, set up employees, and add your Workers Comp Plan.

A reminder to real estate agents that commissioned agents are paid through the broker only. Quickbooks is great for your hourly and salary employees as well as paying yourself if that is what your financial advisor has advised.

Simple Set Up with Automation

Quickbooks For Payroll

Quickbooks allows you to set up auto payroll which creates an automatic payroll on your behalf with the ability to make edits or additions before it runs. Quickbooks will also file your payroll taxes.

While it’s important to always have a tax professional reviewing your QuickBooks account regularly and helping you file your taxes correctly, Quickbooks can make the payroll process simpler.

Subscriptions are auto-billed monthly and you can cancel anytime.

Set Up Subscription

After you have gathered all information you need, move to setting up your Payroll service. Quickbooks has 3 Payroll Plans. Choose the payroll plan that meets your needs.

  1. Core: Cover the basics with simple, reliable automated payroll created for small teams.
  2. Premium: Continue growing with payroll automation, time tracking, same-day direct deposit, professional setup review, and HR support.
  3. Elite: Protect your business with payroll automation and a suite of services that offer complete setup, certified HR support, and tax penalty protection.

Set Up Employees

When you begin adding employee information, you can set-up and assign pay schedules for each employee. You can also create multiple pay schedules for different teams or groups to manage your team.

  1. Add Employee
  2. Fill in Employee Info
  3. Check if you’d like to invite them to view their records online in workforce
  4. Select the Pay Schedule
  5. Set-up How much you pay the employee
  6. Add deductions and garnishments, if any.
  7. Add Witholding Information from their W-4 (Quickbooks payroll automatically calculates state tax witholding based on your entries).
  8. Choose your payment method including the direct deposit option.

Why Should You Use an Open House Sign In Sheet?

Convincing people to sign in at an open house is much easier said than done. Sure, you could force the issue by mandating sign-in, but that will probably be counter-productive because a significant percentage of people are willing to use fake names along with fake contact information.
