Over 190,000 small businesses in Pennsylvania employ at least one employee. Xero is excited to provide an accounting and payroll solution that not only makes running their business easier, but also make them much more efficient.
Seamless online accounting and payroll software is easy to implement and use anytime, anywhere. Payroll information flows seamlessly to keep the books up to date, with journals created automatically. This means no more manual data entry.
If you have employees in Pennsylvania, you can now pay them through Xero. All calculations are completed automatically. Pay your employees through direct deposit or with instant paychecks. And timesheets are included at no extra cost for all employees.

Payroll taxes and payments
You’ll need to manually file and pay your payroll taxes directly with your state tax board in the short term. But don’t worry, we’re working on supporting electronic filing and payments for Pennsylvania. Tax filings and payments can be completed directly through the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.
We’ll tell you when and what you have to file and pay. For the moment, you’ll need to complete this outside of Xero for now. You’ll receive email reminders to ensure you don’t miss any filing deadlines.
You’ll see all upcoming payroll filing and payment obligations on the Payroll Overview. Detailed information is available under Taxes & Filings. Payroll in Xero calculates relevant business days and displays both the File By and Due By dates to keep you informed of key deadlines.
