We are having some trouble with our Xero – payroll feature as well. We’re getting some errors since we started using it. We decided to reset everything and now here it is again. Can you tell us what is really happening in Xero payroll?

Is there anyway of separating annual leave from wages to enable us to view leave liability on the balance sheet report? Similarly, as an employee takes annual leave this should reduce the leave liability and also show on the wage journal as separate entry when you process the payrun?
Is there anyway of including a notes section on employee tab?
