Intuit plans to extend its Intuit Online Payroll service to accountants, Mac users, banks and credit unions, starting this spring.

Intuit Online Payroll for Accounting Professionals will be able to pull account information directly from QuickBooks, as well as export payroll data into QuickBooks, without the need for an intermediary file. The system will flag transactions as successfully exported only when the data is actually recorded in QuickBooks, reducing the risk of exporting incorrect or duplicate information into QuickBooks. The system also offers access to a combined list of upcoming deadlines for all an accountant’s clients on a single screen.

Also in the spring, Intuit plans to include the online payroll service in Digital Insight’s Small Business FinanceWorks online suite of tools for banks and credit unions. Small business customers at Digital Insight’s network of more than 1,800 financial institutions will be able to manage payroll, in addition to billing and invoicing, remote deposits, and legal filings, through their banking system.

In fall 2009, Intuit also plans to expand Intuit Online Payroll to Mac users with Safari browser support and integration with Intuit QuickBooks for Mac. Mac users will be able to enter employees’ hours, and Intuit Online Payroll will automatically calculate their earnings, payroll taxes and deductions, and print their paychecks or directly deposit their pay in the bank.

Intuit is offering Online Payroll free for six months, and $9.95 per month afterward for new users. For more information, visit
