With this, your client can confidently add details for a new team member, pick and assign their role, and invite them to begin using QuickBooks—all from one page.

If your clients use QuickBooks Time and QuickBooks Online Payroll, they can now take care of paychecks and W-2s from one mobile app, QuickBooks Workforce.

Up to $5 million now FDIC-insured in QuickBooks Checking and QuickBooks Money

 In a nutshell: If you or your clients hold QuickBooks Checking or QuickBooks Money balances more than $250,000, you can rest easy knowing those funds are now FDIC-insured for up to $5 million.

  • Their account balance dips below $200.
  • Their account has insufficient funds for an attempted transaction (and they can click through to a page where they can deposit more funds).

Safe Harbor 401(k) plans now available through Guideline

In a nutshell: Our partnership with Guideline allows your clients to offer 401(k) plans to their employees through QuickBooks Payroll. This can help them attract and retain top talent and may help them meet their state’s employer requirements for retirement plan access. Now, your clients’ available 401(k) options include a Safe Harbor 401(k) plan.

A Safe Harbor 401(k) plan helps employees save by requiring employers to contribute to participants’ 401(k) accounts and the contributions must vest immediately. Employer contributions tend to encourage employees to participate, so the IRS offers these employers “safe harbor” from many of its nondiscrimination tests. 

Your clients may even qualify to cover 100% of their plan setup and admin expenses—up to $16,500 over three years—and offset $1,000 in employer contributions per employee with SECURE Act 2.0 tax credits.

Note: The deadline to sign up for a Guideline Safe Harbor 401(k) plan to take effect in 2024 is Aug. 23, 2023.

New tax feature for sole proprietors in the QuickBooks mobile app

In a nutshell: For your or your clients’ businesses that are sole proprietorships, the QuickBooks mobile app now offers a new experience that can help build confidence at tax time. 

Customers using the app will see a new self-employed tax module which includes:


  • See payoffs, like real-time taxable profit insights and potential deductions.
  • Use personalized CTAs to categorize transactions, review trips, and set up a bank if needed.


  • Get quarterly and annual tax estimates via self-employment tax, income tax, and income outside the business.
  • Review tax projections mid-year, based upon year-to-date taxable profit.

Using projections and information from their tax profile, the QuickBooks app can help a sole proprietor predict their tax bill and feel a better sense of control over their money. 

Note: This update is only available to QuickBooks Online customers who have identified themselves as sole proprietors.
