Release notes: updates to Xero on November 11, 2014
Here's a summary of what we've released:
- W-2 Wage and Tax Statement available to e-file (US)
- My Payroll updated (US)
- Time off requests easier to handle (US)
- Superannuation fund lists show USI (AU)
File Form W-2 Wage and Tax Statement for your employees direct from payroll in Xero. If you’ve registered for federal e-file, you can file electronically at the end of the year with a single click.
My Payroll (employee portal) is even easier to use. If you’re an employee, you can do more from the overview page, including the ability to request time off. If you manage a team, the Team Management page has also been improved.
Time off requests are now automatically scheduled when they are approved. The Payroll Admin can still update the time off request, but they don’t have to schedule it manually any more. Also, the Payroll Admin can now bulk approve time off requests.
Super funds listed in payroll in Xero now show the Unique Superannuation Identifier (USI). This is a requirement for SuperStream where all regulated super funds must have a USI. You’ll also see an updated screen when you add super funds in payroll settings.
