Enter or Edit Your Payroll Service Key In QuickBooks

It is important for the users to know how to get started with payroll. So, let’s begin to know more about Payroll Service Key. Whenever you purchase Quickbooks Payroll, you are given a 16-digit service key that is specific to your EIN and payroll service. You need to enter this service key into Quickbooks to activate the payroll service in your QB file.

Go through the given steps to Enter or Edit Your Payroll Service Key:

Step 1: At first, you need to obtain your service key that usually comes by e-mail. In case, if you don’t have your service key then use our automated Service Key Retrieval tool. Now, you need to sign in using your Intuit Account. If you fail to retrieve your service key using this tool then contact us.

Reasons behind not working of an automated tool may be:

  • One reason may be if multiple payroll orders are there in our system for your company.
  • Secondly, if you purchased your payroll product from a retail store, or
  • Lastly, if the business phone number you provided did not match what Intuit has on file.

Step 2: Now, open the Quickbooks Service Keys window. If there is no payroll service in your company file then choose Employees > Payroll > Enter Payroll Service Key. Enter Payroll Service Key

But, if you have a payroll service in your company file then choose Employees > My Payroll Service > Manage Payroll Service.  Manage Payroll Service

Step 3: Go to Quickbooks Service Keys window and then,

  • You need to select Add if no payroll service is listed. select Add if no payroll service is listed
