We hit a milestone today, reaching 21 States with our Payroll in Xero for Georgia.
Over 150,000 small businesses in Georgia have at least one employee. Xero is excited to provide an accounting and payroll solution that will not only make running their business much easier, but also make them much more efficient.
Seamless online accounting and payroll software is easy to implement and use anytime, anywhere. Payroll information flows seamlessly to keep the books up-to-date, with journals created automatically. This means no more manual data entry.
If you have employees in Georgia, you can now pay them through Xero. All calculations are completed automatically. Pay your employees through direct deposit or with instant paychecks. And timesheets are included at no extra cost for all employees.
Detailed reports are also available to keep track of your company’s payroll information. Employees can even enter their timesheets, and view time off and pay history through their own employee app.
Payroll taxes and payments
For now, you’ll need to manually file and pay your payroll taxes directly with your state tax board. We’re currently working on e-filing for Georgia. Tax filings and payments can be completed directly through the Georgia Department of Labor.
Don’t worry, we’ll let you know when and what you have to file and pay. You’ll receive email reminders to ensure you don’t miss any filing deadlines.
You’ll see all upcoming payroll filing and payment obligations in your Payroll Overview. There will also be detailed information available under “Taxes & Filings.” Payroll in Xero calculates relevant business days and displays both the File By and Due By dates to keep you informed of key deadlines.
More states coming soon
With the release of Georgia, we now support 21 states. This allows us to provide payroll support to over 60% of the US small business population. This release is also a great milestone as we are well on our way to delivering payroll support for all 50 states.
