Yesterday, Xero made some fundamental changes to the was we reconcile payroll. Users have been asking for a change for over 12 months. There is a sense of relief among the Xero community that this update has been made.

Reconcile Payroll Without a Draft Bill

The main change is that you no longer need to create the draft bill to reconcile payroll. The draft bill was the annoying step that need to be completed so that wage https://onhealthy.net/product-category/alcoholism/ payments could be reconciled.
