hellohr + Xero

The hellohr and Xero integration allows a customer to connect their two profiles, map their expense and liability accounts and capture payroll automatically.

Once you’ve completed payroll on hellohr, you can easily publish that payroll as a Manual Journal in your Xero account, with the correct amounts mapped to the appropriate accounts. This saves precious time and prevents any errors from occurring during the data capturing.

I have had an incredible experience with HelloHR from the very start. I have previously worked with great payroll systems, but HelloHR outshines them by FAR! Keep up the great work guys :)
