Payroll API

  1. Identify archived Payroll Calendars (AU)

    There is no way to distinguish between archived and active Pay Calendars via the API.

    An argument could be made for excluding them from this API call all together. At the very least there should be a way to tell if a Calendar is archived or not.

  2. Expose detailed Employee taxes

    The Xero Payroll UI shows detailed the Employee Taxes in Paystub/payslip such as Federal Income, SSN, Medicare, State Withholding etc.

    However the Paystubs API only returns the total of that taxes

  3. Webhooks for timesheets

    It would be great to have webhooks for timesheets. Same for leave requests (requested by others).

    This allows us to create a better experience by having to know if a timesheet has been marked as paid and etc and allowing us to prevent any further edits and etc. Additionally, you may have different personas that may edit directly on Xero itself so it would be important to receive those hooks when it happens.

  4. Allow entry of a default or base hourly rate per employee

    When feeding timesheets into Payroll, there is nowhere to specify an hourly rate for Ordinary Hours. The only way to get around this is to set up a default pay per employee that pays 0 hours at the required rate. It works, but is not very intuitive.

  5. Allow update of payslips in UK payroll

    We have numerous users in the UK who wish to update payslips just like we are able to do in NZ/AU - the GET request exists already, but no POST request is available (it is enabled in the NZ version which looks identical). Can we please enable it?

  6. Include tax and filing information in US Payroll API

    We are building some automated processes that help us process payroll approvals and provide tax information to a growing number of clients and it would be very useful to have access to the payroll taxes and filings information in Xero. In particular I would like to see the following information exposed in the US Payroll API:

    1.) ALL pay run data that is included on the Xero web UI. Currently, benefits and employer taxes are not included in the API data, making it impossible for us to communicate the total cost of a payroll to an approving party.

    2.) Taxes…

  8. Retrieve Pay Calendar end dates

    Currently there is no way to determine the end date for a twice monthly calendar.

    I can think of two solutions:
    1. Expose the "calculatePeriods" function as an end point
    2. Add EndDate to the result of the PayCalendars end point

  9. POST payslip end-point for UK Payroll API

    Like AU payroll api, UK payroll api should also have POST end-point so that applications can automatically post payroll information rather than entering them manually.

  11. Terminating an Employee should be incorporated into a Wizard Function.

    From review of the Xero's instructions there are several steps and places that you need to go just to terminate an employee. Surely this can be incorporated into a Wizard feature whereby you choose to terminate one or more selected employees and Xero takes you through the necessary steps to effectively and correctly terminate an employee/s.

  12. AU: Add STP FILED status to PayRunStatus

    For the PayRunStatus in GET PayRuns you show DRAFT and POSTED, it should also be possible to get FILED status so we can see if it's been filed for STP.

  14. UK Api - Missing GET-method for the Employment-api-endpoint

    Hello,
    We are working on a UK integration to your endpoint (version 2.0), and we noticed that you only allow a POST-method for your Employment-endpoint.

    We would need you to introduce a GET-method as we need to access the NationalInsuranceCategory-property.
    I imagine you just forgot to implement a get-method for it?
    Thanks
    Thank you!

    Kind regards Anders

  16. Enable variable custom deductions against employees outside of payrun being initiated

    Would like the ability to put variable/custom deductions against each employee without first initiating a payrun. Each deduction added will be included in the next payrun. This is different to a fixed deduction amount that can be created within the pay template. This new feature will also enable payroll to place deductions against employees without waiting for a payrun to start.

    Presently we'd need to PUT a deduction to pay template > post payrun > delete payitem in template > PUT new deduction amount (repeat this process every pay cycle).

  17. Filter UK timesheets by date

    Unfortunately, UK timesheets API doesn't support filtering by date. That means in order to update a timesheet the client needs to page through every single timesheet in history! It's completely unworkable.

    Please add timesheet filter by date!

    At the moment it's possible to create Statutory Sick records via the API, but not possible to delete them. We're trying to integrate our product with Xero, but we need to be able to delete sick entries if they've been added mistakenly.

  19. Include P32 Information In UK Payroll API

    When I email my client's their payrolls, after posting them, I tell them how much to pay HMRC too, I'm currently trying to automate a lot of this with the UK Payroll API.

    I could potentially work this out, by going back months, and calculating how much they paid, how much employment allowance is left over, etc, but it would be a lot easier for me if the payroll API were expanded to include this.

    I especially would appreciate some way of finding the current Employment Allowance balance, so I could update clients when it's about to run out.

    Thanks!

  20. Add the ability to upload docs to the Employee Note section

    The note tab on each employee file can be enhanced with the ability to add files such as their work contract/s or ID, perhaps even workings related to holidays or payment plans agreed upon, etc. Having the ability to upload can provide the opportunity to load signed agreements which is more important than a "note". The option to make a note visable or not could be useful to employee/employer too.
