Intuit recently shared information about enhancements to QuickBooks Payments, updates to QuickBooks Payroll and an introduction to new ProAdvisor training.

QuickBooks Payments

The following features are available in QuickBooks Payments and will be rolled out to eligible QuickBooks Payments customers over the coming weeks. 

  • Autopay and schedule pay: Autopay will allow customers to securely save payment information and set up automatic payments for recurring invoices. In addition, customers receiving a single invoice will be able to schedule payments for a preferred date. Autopay and schedule pay works for both ACH and card transactions.
  • Estimates: Intuit has rebuilt the estimate feature within QuickBooks Payments. The invoicing product experience is being updated to mirror the workflow of the business interaction with a customer. From the time the estimate is sent, the estimates list and activity tracker will provide visibility into the status from when the estimate has been viewed all the way through payment.

The following features will be available for QuickBooks Payroll Customers:

  • Payroll for Firm-Billed clients: The update allows you to add and manage a standalone payroll option for firm-billed clients inside of QuickBooks Online Accountant by selecting the payroll option in “Add Client”.
