QuickBooks Online Payroll Integration

If you are using 7punches for time-clocking, or have a POS integration that includes labor, you can now send your regular hours, OT hours, and double OT hours directly to QuickBooks Online.

This feature is only available on The Works plan or higher and for those using QuickBooks Online.
🇨🇦 Full functionality is not available for clients using QuickBooks Online in Canada. For Canadian clients, all hours will send as regular hours, as overtime hours (OT) is not supported.
