What is going on with the wholesale billing for payroll?

In the past, we had been billed for client's payroll at a rate of $19.50 + $2 per employee per month ("pe/pm"), but now the summary client screen shows payroll is $17.50 + $4 pe/pm up to 10 employees, then then $2.50 for 11+, but my invoice summary shows I am being billed for $17.50 + $3.60 pe/pm, but the actual amounts billed are weird, like $87.23 and $46.32.  I can't figure out how to bill my clients!  I tried calling and was told I had to speak to my elite care specialist, but she is not returning my calls/emails.

Also, what triggers the removal of an employee for the pe/pm fee?  (Making them inactive? Entering a termination date?  Just not cutting them a check that month? Do they stay on until the end of the year?) 


Hello there, lcarmichael,

We need to check your account to confirm how we billed your clients for the payroll and how the charges are calculated. I suggest contacting us again to  view and discuss this sensitive information with you.

To contact us, please go to the Help menu at the top, then select the Contact us button.

On the other hand, We only charge the employee fee per month when you create paychecks for your employees.

Should you have other concerns about payroll in QuickBooks, please don't hesitate to leave a comment below. I'm just around if you need help.

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.
