Assign a tracking category to payroll

Assign a tracking category to payroll so you can track payroll expenses and employee hours by groups of employees or timesheets. This way, you can view reports for different areas of your business.

Set up all your tracking categories first so they are available to select when you add tracking options.

Set up tracking categories in Xero

  1. In the Settings menu, select Payroll Settings.
  2. From the Organisation tab under Payroll Tracking:
    • From the Employee Groups list, select the category to track employee groups.
    • From the Timesheet Categories list, select the category to track timesheets.
  3. Click Save.
