Wants to Enter or Edit Payroll Service Key In QuickBooks? 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.
It is important for users to know how to get started with payroll. So, let’s begin to know more about Payroll Service Key.
Conditions and Limitations
- It is important to access and use QuickBooks from the registered Desktop.
- It is good to use a single payroll subscription for all the companies.
- When working on multiple files using the same EIN or payroll subscription, you may face an issue that says that the QB desktop payroll supports a single data file with a unique EIN.
- If you pay employees with direct deposits, you will be able to create multiple company accounts with the same payroll membership.
- Make sure that the payroll administrator and contact information for the QuickBooks payroll subscription are the same for every company.
Steps to Enter or Edit Your Payroll Service Key
