What is QuickBooks?

QuickBooks is a software that allows users to conduct accounting operations. With its user-friendly features, QuickBooks helps small and medium-sized businesses to organize their data in a pragmatic manner. You can use it to invoice a customer, pay your bills and generate reports for tax filing and billing. You can also track all your cash flows and maintain the records. With QuickBooks, you can also allow different levels of access to data for different types of people in your business as well as generate profit and loss reports. With the dashboard review feature, you can instantly view all your financials as soon as you sign in. You can set up recurring payments for automatic bill pay effortlessly. There are many more operations that can be performed with QuickBooks Desktop so that you can manage your finances in the smoothest and most efficient manner.

Hassle-free running of Payroll

One of the biggest advantages of using QuickBooks Desktop is that it can automatically calculate and run payroll as often as you need it. The function is integrated and therefore it is always up-to-date with the latest payroll run. You can pay the employees with a cheque or deposit directly and even e – pay. It will also fill the payroll tax forms for you.

How does it Calculate Payroll?

To calculate payroll, QuickBooks Desktop uses tax tables. To get the tax tables to use with your own QuickBooks company data file, you will have to subscribe to one of the Intuit Payroll Services such as QuickBooks Basic Payroll, QuickBooks Standard Payroll, QuickBooks Enhanced Payroll or QuickBooks Assisted Payroll. It calculates each employee’s gross pay and then calculates taxes and deductions to get the net pay. QuickBooks keeps track of all your tax liabilities so that you don’t miss out on them while including them in the calculations.
