When using QBO with payroll, the $2.00 per employee per month fee is charged regardless of whether the employee is paid by written cheque or direct deposit is used?


Good day rhonda!

Welcome to the Community.

The $2 per employee fee applies to all the active employees regardless of if you pay them by cheque or direct deposit. If you have employees that are not on payroll, you can inactivate them to avoid being charged for the per employee fee.

Here's how:

  1. Click Employees in the left pane.
  2. Locate the employee that you want to inactivate.
  3. Click the Edit button in the far right of the employee's name.
  4. Click Make Inactive.
  5. Click Save.

Let me know if you have further questions.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
