Overview of QuickBooks Payroll service plan levels

QuickBooks Payroll offers several service plans, such as Enhanced Payroll. Some of these plans offer different levels of pricing based on a maximum number of employees you expect to pay each month. How can I tell what plan I'm on?

Finding QuickBooks Payroll subscription

If at any time you need to pay more employees than your service plan level allows, QuickBooks lets you do one of the following:

  • Pay a small flat fee that allows you to run payroll for an unlimited number of employees in that month only.

  • Change to a service plan level that allows you to pay more employees.

How does QuickBooks Payroll know when I've reached my employee limit?

To determine when you've reached your employee limit, QuickBooks uses the following rules:

  • We use the paycheck date to determine which month to evaluate.

  • We count all the employees you have marked for payment in this payroll.

  • We add any additional employees you paid earlier this same month.

  • We subtract any employees you have terminated and released from QuickBooks prior to the current paycheck date.

Does my service plan level limit the number of W-2s I can issue at the end of the year?

No. You can issue as many Form W-2s as you need to.
