CitrusHR + Xero

citrus HR syncs up with Xero to import your payroll journal securely at the click of a button, reducing the risk of human error and saving you hours of calculation and data entry.

Our software naturally has all the information you need for payroll. So instead of exporting that and somehow re-entering it to separate payroll, you can now do payroll within our software - in under 5 minutes! It couldn’t be easier or quicker.

We also link your client, project and account codes directly from Xero, which your team can then log expense claims against within citrus HR. Approved expense claims are then synced with Xero to keep your accounting records accurate and up to date!

And that’s just the start. citrus HR will make all your day to day HR and payroll admin quick, easy and totally secure:

  • Manage time-off (holidays, time-off in lieu, sickness and absences)

CitrusHR is a fantastic tool with a really user friendly interface. It's intuitive and takes the pain out of HR. Expenses integrate into Xero making it easy for staff to manage their own receipts. Definitely recommend it!

CitrusHR has made our lives so much easier. We are a small team and HR can take up a lot of work and cause stress and panic making sure you are compliant with all HR laws. CitrusHR has given us all the legal bits as well as a great way of managing holidays and appraisals and job offers. I can highly recommend it as a fantastic tool and service. They have also been really responsive and useful when we have had legal queries.

Citrus is a great user friendly platform, which helps us keep accurate records of staff leave and absences. Their legal team has been especially helpful advising me on how to handle difficult employment issues. Their integration with Xero helps us manage staff expenses more effectively
