QuickBooks Payroll Services and Features for QuickBooks Desktop
Article Source: https://quickbookscommunity.wordpress.com/2017/11/04/quickbooks-payroll-services-and-features-for-quickbooks-desktop-2/
A QuickBooks Payroll Service is a subscription you activate to enable the payroll features in your QuickBooks Desktop Software. Depending on the features you need, you can choose from Basic, Enhanced or Assisted Payroll.
QuickBooks Payroll service does not work with QuickBooks Mac. Mac users use Intuit Online Payroll as their payroll add-on. As a standalone software, Intuit Online Payroll only exports transactions to QuickBooks Desktop and Quickbooks Online (without Quickbooks Online Payroll).
Note: The payroll service described in this article is intended for QuickBooks Desktop (QuickBooks Pro/Premier or Enterprise) users.
