As the 2012-2013 Australian financial year packs its bags and heads for the airport, it’s a good time to look back over some of the highlights of the past year for payroll in Australia. The last 12 months have certainly been exciting and we’re pleased that more and more Australian businesses continue to recognise how easy it is to use Payroll in Xero, especially when it comes to producing payment summaries, and managing legislation changes such as the statutory Superannuation rate. And all the everyday things, too.
Today we’re introducing our annual State of the Nation infographic. Xero has now processed nearly $3.5b of payroll for 150,000 employees. Over $35m of Superannuation has been paid via automatic superannuation payments, saving our customers hundreds of hours. And nearly 3,000 years of holidays have been taken since we introduced payroll last year. You’d definitely have a tan after sitting on the beach for that long.
Whenever we build something new, or enhance something existing, our goal is to help you manage your payroll in the best possible way and an exciting update coming soon is online Tax File Number Declaration lodgements to the ATO. One less bit of paperwork.
Xerocon is just around the corner and I will be presenting some exciting updates planned for Payroll. You’re going to like what you hear. And see.
Finally, to make your end of year processing even easier, we’ve created a series of webinars to help walk you through payroll EOFY processing in Xero. These free online sessions will give you all the tips and tricks you need to avoid the usual headaches. Register now or access a recorded version if you can’t make the live sessions.
