Innovative payroll for small business

Processing payroll can be time-consuming and complex – basically, a major headache for business owners.

Payroll in Xero makes it easy to manage your payroll from anywhere. It saves hours of administrative work and lets you lodge reports with the ATO – all from within Xero. Your payroll data automatically appears on your general ledger after a pay run to help keep your accounts up-to-date.

Payroll has rapidly evolved with significant updates in the last two years. Here are some of the recent highlights:

Seamless and compliant superannuation
Auto-super on premium plans automatically makes contributions to different super funds for your employees. Xero’s auto-super is gold-level certified for SuperStream, the ATO’s new superannuation payments standard. All businesses need to use a SuperStream compliant service by 30 June 2016.

Mobile app that cuts the paperwork from leave requests and payslips
With Xero Me, our app for payroll users, employees can request leave and managers can approve or decline it – all from their mobile. Xero Me saves on administration because employees can view their pay history and submit timesheets from anywhere.

Pay out unused leave when employment ends
Save time and hassle by processing final earnings, unused leave balances and any redundancy payments in a single pay run. Increase accuracy because tax on unused leave is calculated automatically.

Easily view and manage leave
It’s now simpler to view accrued leave and opening balances, and leave requests are automatically included in applicable payruns.
