By Sharna CouperXero has recently announced a number of exciting new Payroll features, which are coming in their update this month. The feature that we are most excited about is the automatic integration of payroll transactions into your General Ledger. We have found in the past that the process of creating and approving bills for pay runs has been a source of confusion for many of our clients. This new release will mean that once you have posted your pay run, Xero will do the rest for you -... More...
