Transfer funds to your employees' bank accounts

Pay employees from your bank account by downloading the .ABA file from payroll in Xero, and then importing it using online banking.

If you are not paying your employees by bank transfer, you’ll need to pay them another way.

Download ABA file and import to your online bank

  1. On the Payroll menu, click Pay Runs.
  2. Click the posted pay run period to download the payment file.
  3. Click Pay Run Options and select Download ABA.
  4. Save the file and import it to your online banking account.
After your bank makes the payments, you'll need to code the transaction to the wages payable account you selected during set up.
