Pay your employees and send payslips

Pay your employees in bulk using internet banking. Then email employees their payslips directly from Xero.

Before you start

How it works

  • Xero produces payment files (ABA files) for download. You can import these files into internet banking and use them to make batch payments.
  • If you're not paying your employees through batch payments, you'll need to pay them another way. You could use cash, a cheque or individual online payments.
  • Once you've paid your employees, you can email their payslips directly from Xero. Alternatively, employees with access to My Payroll can view and print payslips themselves.
