I purchased Intuit Quickbooks Online Payroll. I have used it for 3 months and I don't like it. I want to switch to Intuit Online Payroll. Can I do that through you?



Hello there, montana_leslie,

I'm here to guide you on how you can switch from QuickBooks Online Payroll (QBOP) to Intuit Online Payroll (IOP).

If you will be switching to IOP, you need to enter each information manually. You need to enter prior payroll since you have paid wages during the current calendar year. This will ensure an accurate year-to-date total on your paystubs, and correct W-2 information at the end of the year.

You need to prepare the following for your reference:

  • Employee Basic Information, Pay Schedule, Pay Rates, and Other pay types
  • Year to Date Totals for Each Employee
  • Year to Date Totals for Each EE as of the last paycheck in the previous quarter
  • List of tax payments you've made and its YTD.

Simply visit the Reports menu in your QBOP account and print all necessary reports you need to start your payroll in IOP.

To guide you with the detailed steps and visual reference in setting up payroll and what else to prepare, you can check out this article: Set up a Prior Payroll (Set up payroll with Intuit Online Payroll).

Please let me know if you have other payroll concerns by leaving 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.
