Delete an employee

Delete an employee record from payroll if there are no payroll related transactions for them in Xero. You might want to do this if the employee was added twice and you want to completely remove the duplicate record from Xero.

If you've included the employee in a payroll transaction, you can't delete them. You'll need to end their employment.
  1. Go to Payroll, then click Employees.
  2. Click the employee you want to delete.
  3. Click Delete.
