New QuickBooks Online solution ideal for clients who have 1099 contractors

Pay contractors fast

Your clients can take care of payday with unlimited contractor payments and next-day direct deposit.** Plus to keep things organized, payments sync with QuickBooks Online, so their books stay up-to-date.**

Simple self-setup

Your clients can invite their contractors to complete W-9s or provide bank deposit details online. When they invite contractors to self-setup through QuickBooks Self Employed, Intuit protects their data and adds it to their profile.

  • Clients request contractors’ tax info with a click.
  • Contractors receive a link to a QuickBooks Self Employed where they can complete W-9s or provide bank deposit details online.
  • We’ll add the data to their contractor profile and notify the client when it’s done.

E-file unlimited 1099s

Stay tax time ready with QuickBooks Contractor Payments. Create and e-file unlimited 1099s for contractors and vendors.** E-file both 1099-NEC and 1099-MISC forms. Your 1099s are recorded and easy to categorize.

QuickBooks Contractor Payments is available for only $15/mo for up to 20 contractors and $2/mo for each additional contractor. Also, as part of ProAdvisor® Preferred Pricing for firm billed clients, there is a discount of 30% off the base fee and 15% off the per contractor fee. You can easily add Contractor Payments for your clients at the discounted rate through the billing and subscriptions page when signed into QuickBooks Online Accountant.

Alternatively, if your clients do not have QuickBooks Contractor Payments or QuickBooks Online Payroll that includes 1099 filing as part of their subscription, they can still file through QuickBooks Online (fees apply*), Intuit will take care of the filing and delivery.

  • Clients prepare and submit their 1099s in QuickBooks.
  • Intuit files them with the IRS.
  • Intuit delivers copies to your contractors for no extra charge.
