Manage Payroll Anywhere From Poughkeepsie to Portland; New Payroll Solution Built Into QuickBooks Online Edition Allows Users to Manage Payroll From Anywhere.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Answering the growing call for on-demand accounting applications, Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq:INTU) today launched QuickBooks Online Payroll, a fully integrated payroll solution designed specifically for the more than 60,000 QuickBooks Online Edition customers. Building on expertise gained through QuickBooks' existing payroll offerings used by more U.S. businesses than any other payroll provider, QuickBooks Online Payroll is an easy way for QuickBooks Online users to manage payroll anytime, anywhere.

"Integrated payroll was the No. 1-requested new feature for QuickBooks Online Edition," said Paul Rosenfeld, general manager of QuickBooks Online Edition. "Today's small business owners need to get work done from wherever they are, which means that the ability to easily pay employees anywhere, anytime is critical. By listening carefully to our customers, we've developed a payroll feature for QuickBooks Online Edition that works in the same familiar, protected environment that our online customers know and trust."

Freedom to Create Paychecks Anytime, Anywhere

In the past, one of the biggest inconveniences of doing payroll was the need to be in the office on payday. With QuickBooks Online Payroll, small business owners have anytime, anywhere payroll access which gives them freedom to travel with the confidence that their employees will still get paid.

"I run a small consulting firm so I'm always on the road traveling between multiple locations -- my home, office, hotel or a client site," said David Earl Spencer of Expert Marketing in Oakland, Calif. "QuickBooks Online Edition was exactly what I needed for my business. With the new Online Payroll features, I can manage every aspect of my business even when I am on the road. If need be, I can even process payroll from my hotel room at midnight!"

Help Every Step of the Way

Setting up and managing payroll can be a challenge for some small businesses, and can result in expensive penalties if done incorrectly. Because small businesses want differing levels of help -- from setup to creating paychecks and paying taxes -- QuickBooks Online Edition includes its award-winning support in the cost of subscription.

"QuickBooks Online Payroll is really easy. You can receive outstanding assistance with each step -- which was especially helpful to me during setup," said Tamara Umberson of Southside Community Church in Corpus Christi, Texas. "The staff is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of payroll. They helped me with my questions and educated me in the process. I found they were truly concerned about me and eager to remedy any issues I was having."

Included email support provides customers with access to the help they want when they need it, giving them confidence that they will get speedy answers to their toughest questions. The new payroll feature also includes e-mail reminders for critical payday events and tax filing deadlines so small businesses are sure not to miss a paycheck or important filing date.

Easy Collaboration With Accountants

QuickBooks Online Edition includes a free license for a small business' accountant, enabling users and their accountants to work seamlessly together in real time and use the same data. Accountants can access client data online anytime, anywhere without the need to exchange files or visit a client's site, helping them resolve issues in less time.

"As a public accounting firm, we do payroll for hundreds of businesses. QuickBooks Online Payroll is streamlined, easy to understand and simple to use," said Jake Hanes of Hanes Consulting & Tax Services, LLC in Tacoma, Wash. "QuickBooks Online is especially effective for clients who need remote access to their payroll. The on-demand model allows us to work with our clients to provide backup for payroll and tax filings to help ensure accuracy while still giving our clients the control to run their own payroll anytime, anywhere."

Pricing, Availability and Support

QuickBooks Online Edition and QuickBooks Online Payroll are available at www.oe.quickbooks.com. QuickBooks Online Payroll is $14.95 per month with no limit on the number of employees. This price includes unlimited email support from the QuickBooks Online Edition support team. For customers who prefer the desktop version of QuickBooks, Intuit offers a full line of payroll offerings that are integrated within the QuickBooks desktop software.
