We can transition your business from any previous payroll system and get you up and running on Xero Payroll.

Thinking of making the switch to Xero Payroll? Here are a few issues Xero Payroll can help you solve.

  • Are manual calculations for tax, holiday leave or KiwiSaver causing headaches, or worse, mistakes on payslips?
  • Are you keeping up with the regular changes to tax rates and government rules?
  • Has your business grown, and the process of recording employees’ work hours and running payroll become overly time-consuming?
  • Are you frustrated at repeating the same tasks each payroll when it would be easier to set it up once and let payroll run automatically?

If you think it’s time for a change, we’re happy to discuss implementing a new payroll system, like Xero Payroll.
