More about HMRC payroll software

When you enable automatic enrolment and re-enrolment in Xero, eligible employees are enrolled in your workplace pension, and contributions are deducted from their pay. Xero sends data directly to Nest or The People’s Pension, or lets you submit a file to another provider.

View a wide range of payroll reports to get valuable information on payroll activity, transactions, remuneration and pension contributions.
