Intuit has announced price changes for various Payroll products effective August 1, 2015. Annual subscribers will be notified of the new pricing prior to their renewal date and will be charged the new price effective upon renewal. Monthly subscribers will be notified 45 days prior to their actual price change.
QuickBooks Desktop Users
To give you a comparison, the current Intuit QuickBooks Payroll Website (as shown below) has Enhanced Payroll (for 1-3 employees) regularly priced at $390.00 per year, but currently it is on sale for $351.00. So it appears that the just announced price represents a $9.00/year increase over the current (non-sale) price.
(Note to self - "might want to get an early renewal, with a pro-rated return of current subscription and pay the $351 for new year, a savings of $48 over August 1 pricing.")
QuickBooks Enhanced Payroll for Accountants and QuickBooks ProAdvisors®
The following price changes are also effective August 1, 2015.
Direct Deposit Fees
In releasing the new direct deposit fees, Intuit's announcement stated, "in mid-2013, our pricing changed to include direct deposit in the base subscription fee. Customers who are on this pricing structure will NOT see an increase in their base subscription fees. If they use Direct Deposit for 1099 Vendors, however, they will be subject to the new $1.75 per-deposit fee."
