Reconcile a payroll transaction paid manually
Reconcile a bank statement line representing a payroll transaction paid manually by cash or personal check.
After you process a pay run in Xero and pay it manually by cash or check, you’ll need to reconcile the transactions by allocating (coding) them to your payroll accounts. For example, your wages payable or tax accounts.
Make sure you've:
Processed all relevant pay runs
Imported your bank statements
Made sure all checks have been cashed
- Go to Accounts, then click Bank Accounts.
- Find the account you paid your wages from, and click Reconcile [number] items.
- Find the bank statement line that represents the net wages.
- Click the Create tab to create a spend money transaction.
Enter the payroll wage details such as transaction name, account, and details.
- Click OK to reconcile.
