General Xero Training Tutorials

We talk about how to reconcile a payment when a client overpays you and when a client underpays you . This video also explains how to create a credit note.

Editing an email template

This is the template you see when you send out a sales invoice. We go over in particular how to change the trading name on the invoice to be what you want exactly, which might be your display name. As some trading names can be unnecessarily long.

Edit/Create Invoice Branding

This feature is handy if you have multiple businesses/companies trading under one xero account and want to separate invoices to be branded differently. This is also helpful if you want to create different branding templates for different payment types.

Xero Payroll Tutorials

Payroll settings

This demo includes a very important first step of being able to add super fund details in for employees. This is a must watch before adding in employees into your payroll, as payroll settings need to be set up correctly right from the start, before you do anything else.

Processing a payrun

In this tutorial we discuss how to process a payrun. We go through each step from adding a payrun, editing fields, finalising with single touch payroll and emailing out payslips. 

Employee termination

Employee termination with annual leave payout – setting final pay in xero. We show you the correct way to terminate an employee in xero, payout their annual leave and set their last pay as their ‘final pay’.

Applying leave in payroll

In this video snippet we go through how to do a leave request for an employee – Once you approve the request this automatically applies to the pay run that contains those dates you have put the leave in for.

Opening balances for employees

 Opening balances are normally used when you are transferring from an old accounting software to a new one. We need to be able to copy over what leave employees are owed so we can all keep track of what they have accrued and also allow the employee to see it on their payslip.

Add in your first employee

We go through step by step on how to add a new employee to payroll and set them up correctly from the start. If you haven’t watched payroll settings, please watch that video first before adding in an employee.
