Introduction Part 3: What payroll information can be updated and created with the enableHR-Xero 2-way Connector? (Australia Only)


Note: We strongly recommend you contact the Client Success Team for guidance when setting up Xero Integration.

The enableHR-Xero Connector focuses on the payroll part of Xero and allows for the synchronisation of the following types of information:

  • Employee record
  • Bank accounts;
  • Superannuation memberships;
  • Tax details; and
  • Leave balances.

Please see the below figures to determine what can be updated and from which system.


How many bank accounts are supported?

enableHR supports up to 4 bank accounts under any one employee record. Updates to these details can be made on either enableHR or Xero.


What kind of superannuation memberships are supported?

enableHR supports industry or commercial super funds.  enableHR does not however support Self-Managed Super Funds. Updates to these details can be made on either enableHR or Xero.



How are tax details stored in the systems?

The Tax File Number is always exported from Xero into enableHR in a masked format – for example, ###-###-123.  Updates to the Tax File Number can be made through enableHR’s Employee Self Service (eSS) portal.


 Note: The Employment basis is tax related, not Employment related

How are leave balances managed?

Leaves balances are managed in Xero and are therefore are seen in enableHR and eSS in ‘Read Only’ format. The leave balance types that are viewable in enableHR include Annual Leave, Personal Leave and Long Service Leave.

Where will this data be stored?
