We’ve been testing PaymentEvolution Payroll integration with Xero for some time now but today, we’re officially launching the service for all existing and new clients. We’re excited about this integration – bringing full fledged Canadian payroll services to the online bookkeeping tools from Xero.

If you haven’t tried Xero – check it out – there’s a great free trial and the service provides a comprehensive way to manage your business finances, invoices and ledger. And, of course, now you get your Canadian payroll needs integrated too!

See your PaymentEvolution Payroll transactions in XeroWe have a good “getting started” guide posted in our community – http://help.paymentevolution.com/entries/22143483-xero-online-accounting-integration. The setup process is straight forward essentially creating a connection between the services so we can post your payroll transactions to Xero. These transactions will show as a draft invoice which you can approve and commit to your Xero ledger. It’s simple and takes just a few minutes to setup.

Integration services are normally available to our clients on a paid plan but existing and new clients who sign up before Feb 1 2012 will receive Xero integration at no additional cost (even if you are on a free plan). You will be “grandfathered” and will always have this integration available to you. Did someone say free? YES – it’s free!

Canadians now have access to the some of the best cloud-based apps to run their businesses – full-featured online accounting from the wonderful folks at Xero and simple to use, enterprise-class payroll from PaymentEvolution.
