QuickBooks Payroll Overview

VARC Solutions is staffed by a team of QuickBooks ProAdvisors® that can assist you in determining which payroll option is right for you. Whether you have 1 employee or many there is a solution for your business. QuickBooks Payroll can be added to either your Desktop or Online version. In this article, we will look at some of the baseline features of each and give an overview of the costs associated with the levels within.

QuickBooks Online

  • Pricing for QBO payroll can run as little as 13.50 dollars plus 4.00 dollars per employee per month.
  • Employers can, in some instances, automatically pay employees after payroll has been set up.
  • Intuit can automatically calculate, file, and pay your payroll taxes.

QuickBooks Desktop

  • Pricing for the basic version of QuickBooks Desktop payroll is 29.00 dollars plus 2.00 dollars for each employee per month.
  • Time tracking is integrated into the payroll module.
  • There is no additional charge for direct deposit.

QuickBooks Online, also known as QBO, is becoming more popular with small business owners that want to be able to work in their QuickBooks file on the fly. QBO can be accessed anywhere you have a computer and a good internet connection. That said, Intuit has developed a three-tiered payroll program to meet the needs of any size business. Features for each version are found in the table below.
