Our "Xero Payroll Course" is one I wish was available to me when I was learning how to use Xero.
As I became proficient at Xero, I realised the need for an easy-to-follow payroll course for beginners.
So here you have it, a course that will step you through everything you need to know about setting up and using Xero’s payroll system.
What will I learn from this course?
First, we will cover how to correctly set up your payroll settings. You will learn how to pay employees weekly, fortnightly or monthly and how to set up different public holidays for each Australian state and territory.
We will then learn how to set up different earnings pay items for ordinary hours, overtime hours and allowances, and how to set up deductions for salary sacrificing, union fees and more.
You will also see where to set up your employees’ regulated and self-managed superannuation funds.
After we finish the payroll settings, we go through the process of adding employees to payroll.
We then look at how to manage leave applications and how to manage timesheets for your casual staff.
We also run through the entire process of putting together and processing pay runs before learning how to pay your staff through online banking.
At various stages, we go into the My Payroll portal where your employees can go to see their payslips, submit timesheets and apply for leave.
Finally, we cover some important topics such as setting up Single Touch Payroll (STP), end of financial year reporting and how to pay out unused annual leave.
By the end of the course you should have the confidence and know-how to set up and run Xero payroll for your business.
What is the course structure?
** Please note that this course uses the Australian version of Xero however many concepts apply to payroll in all countries **
A major benefit of this course is that you can practise your skills in real time in Xero’s demo company as you watch each lesson.
That way, you can learn by doing, as the whole course is one big interactive exercise!
