Transfer funds to your employees' bank accounts

If you have set up your organisation to process payments by Bacs, and have entered each employee’s bank account information, pay your employees by downloading the BACS 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.
  1. On the Payroll menu, click Pay Runs.
  2. Click the posted pay run period to download the payment file.
  3. Click Options and select Download BACS File.
  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.
