Seamless Xero Integration

CloudPayroll® can send General Ledger postings directly into the Xero accounting system as authorised accounts payable invoices. Once approved, these can be reconciled to the payments using Xero's Bank Reconciliation.

The CloudPayroll® to Xero Interface

Your GL Postings will be automatically imported into Xero whenever a Payroll is Confirmed. These authorised Accounts Payable invoices will be created in Xero:-
  1. Nett Pay debited: Gross by cost centre less taxes
  2. Superannuation collected and held in trust
  3. CloudPayroll's Processing Fees
To get the most out of the interface you should set up cost centres in CloudPayroll® that correspond to your Xero General Ledger Account codes.

You can also set up any Xero Tracking codes that you use in CloudPayroll®. Tracking codes are like cost centres and allow your chart of accounts to remain clean with no repeating groups required.

It's a simple, once-only, step to enable the interface from CloudPayroll® into Xero using the Xero Network.
