How do I change/update State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) Setup from "Applied For" to the new number received from the state?

I currently get an error when changing the state Employer's Number from "Applied For". - error "You cannot change the Employer's Number for this company because you have enrolled in NM EFT. If you have received a new Employer's Number, please contact customer service for assistance."


Hello there, @clayton.consulti,

Your NM e-service is active, and that's why you're unable to change the SUI employer number. What you need to do is turn off the NM electronic service so you can update the number.

I recommend contacting our QuickBooks Online Payroll Team for further assistance. They can do screen-sharing to help you with the process and proceed with the necessary steps so you can change the number and activate the e-service.

I've added this article for additional information about electronic services: Pay and file payroll taxes electronically.

Let me know if there's anything else you need with changing the SUI employer number. I'm always around here in the Intuit Community to 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.
