Change the direct deposit primary contact for payroll

Chance the name or email address of an existing primary contact, or choose a different primary contact to receive direct deposit emails in Xero payroll.

How it works

The primary contact must be a Payroll Admin in Xero. They're the person who receives all direct deposit confirmation emails advising of approved deposits, and all notification emails. For example, notice of failed deposits for inadequate funds, or wrong bank information.

The emails can only be sent to the one contact.
