An email was sent to QuickBooks accounting professionals on Nov. 30, 2023 announcing the upcoming pricing changes for QuickBooks Desktop Payroll. See the details below.
Starting Jan. 8, 2024, the fee for each direct deposit processed through Desktop Payroll will increase to $4.
This price change impacts Enhanced Payroll for Accountants when using direct deposit to pay W-2 employees.
- Because the employee direct deposit fee is billed directly to your clients, Intuit will send a 30-day notice to your impacted clients, addressed to the primary principal's email address on file.
For clients on “legacy” Enhanced, Standard, and Basic Payroll plans without monthly per employee fees, the new fee will apply when paying W-2 employees via direct deposit.
The following Payroll plans are not impacted by the change:
- “Non-legacy” Basic, Enhanced, and Assisted Payroll plans that have monthly per employee fees.
- Payroll that is included in the QuickBooks Enterprise Gold, Platinum, and Diamond plans.
- Direct deposit (bill payments) fees to contractors/vendors paid through Desktop Payroll.
