Import payroll data into QuickBooks from excel. 6 steps to easily import payroll.

QuickBooks is a highly underrated program. The reason we say this is because people only take this as a software to maintain one’s books of accounts. But believe us this is not all that you can do with it. QuickBooks is highly capable to maintain and import payroll data into QuickBooks from excel. Other things include.

  • Consolidating your data,
  • Track all the sales and expenses you do,
  • Create and manage all your invoices and send them via email from within QuickBooks,
  • Your profit and loss, cash flow statements, balance sheet reports can be made with ease.
  • Tracking debtors and creditors is a breeze with QB.
  • Tax computation with just a click of a button.

Having all these features compiled within one program makes QuickBooks highly intuitive. Thus if you are so far using QB just to digitalize your books then we must say that you are underestimating its performance.
