Submit a leave request for an employee
Create and approve a leave request for an employee before running a pay, if they didn't submit them in time or if they don't have access to My Payroll (the employee portal).
Go to Payroll, then click Leave.
Click New Leave Request.
Select the employee and enter all the details.
The employee's leave balance excludes current requests and all unprocessed leave.
Xero will process the leave in the next pay run.
