My Enhanced Payroll just automatically renewed on March 17, 2019. How will that affect me after the May 31st, 2019 deadline for QuickBooks Pro 2016?


Hello there, paldi,

Let me provide some insights on what will happen to your newly renewed payroll once QuickBooks Pro 2016 is discontinued.

If you will upgrade your QuickBooks Desktop to its latest version, then you can still continue using your Enhanced Payroll without interruption.

If you’ve decide not to upgrade QuickBooks, your payroll subscription will still be active but you can no longer run payroll using QuickBooks. If you cancel your payroll, you’ll receive a prorated refund for the unused portion of it.

To avoid the discontinuation of your payroll service, I'd recommend performing the following by May 31, 2019:

  1. Purchase a supported version of QuickBooks Software.
  2. Install QuickBooks Desktop, then register it to your account.
  3. Once done, you can run your payroll using the new software.

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.
