Seamless accounting and payroll (AU)

Transactions from payroll will seamlessly flow through to, and impact, the general ledger immediately. The wage expenses and associated deductions and reimbursements are represented as a journal.

Changes to pay runs (AU)

Reversing errors is much easier as you can now create and post a negative unscheduled pay run.

Employee notes (AU and US)

Capture important information about an employee in the new Notes tab. All notes are time and date stamped, and accessible to the users with Payroll Admin permissions only.

Employee screen updates (AU and US)

We’ve updated the Employment tab to make it easier to set up US employees. There is also a new employees list layout including search for Australia and a History section to show previous employees.

Chart of Accounts addition (AU)

A new account 804 Wages Payable - Payroll has been added to most organizations’ Chart of Accounts for use in payroll in Xero. This is not a system account and can be edited.
