Complete Payroll for QuickBooks Online Edition
Intuit's Complete Payroll is the only full service payroll solution that seamlessly updates data not only into QuickBooks, but now also into QuickBooks Online Edition, providing small businesses with a comprehensive anytime, anywhere accounting and full-service payroll solution. The new offering maximizes productivity and provides business insight through flexible service and powerful reporting capabilities that can be accessed on the road, at home or the office.
E-File & Pay for QuickBooks Do-It-Yourself Payroll
Fully integrated with QuickBooks accounting software, QuickBooks Do-It-Yourself Payroll gives business owners all of the tools and tax tables they need to manage their payroll, plus timely updates to ensure they stay compliant. Do-It-Yourself Payroll is now available with E-File & Pay options for federal and quarterly state payroll tax electronic filing and payment, which provide significant productivity gains for payroll users. The state forms and eFiling are licensed from Aatrix Software Inc. With the click of a button, federal and quarterly state forms are filed and tax liability paid, allowing small businesses to save time by filing and paying federal and state payroll taxes electronically. Intuit guarantees that filings will be made on time, reducing the possibility of costly fines. Due to the QuickBooks integration, E-File & Pay eliminates the need to manually re-enter data into payroll tax forms and reduces the risk of errors.
Complete Payroll HR Assistant
Available beginning in July 2003, Complete Payroll's HR Assistant helps business owners manage employee information and stay in compliance with federal and state employment laws and regulations. Integrated directly with Complete Payroll's PC Entry software, HR Assistant provides employers with guidance to perform key HR events and processes, answers common employee administration questions, and provides the forms and templates required for managing employees. HR Assistant integrates with information already in Complete Payroll - eliminating duplicate data entry and helping to ensure greater accuracy, while expediting employee administration and payroll.
