Save time on admin
Save time by allowing employees to submit timesheets and leave requests from their desktop or mobile device – all you need to do is review and approve.
Say goodbye to journal entries
Since Xero Payroll is seamlessly integrated into the accounts, there’s no more need to post journal entries – saving you time and reducing potential errors.
Manage and pay staff as they return to work through COVID-19
Xero Payroll’s flexibility in managing employees' working hours and updated statutory sick pay functionality means you can pay staff during these challenging times, in line with recent government legislation.
Return to work with flexible furlough: The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme now helps employers manage their employees return to work part-time whilst ensuring employees continue to receive the same level of financial support. Flexible furlough enables employees to receive full pay for actual hours worked, plus 80% wage subsidy for the balance of their usual working hours.
Changes to statutory sick pay: We’ve added 'COVID-19 self isolation' as a sick leave option for employees who are required to self-isolate, so they can earn sick pay from day one instead of the usual four consecutive days.
