When does Zenefits payroll export pay runs to Xero

Zenefits Payroll will only export payroll information to Xero for runs that are processed and paid. Once a run shows up in the Paid table on the Pay Runs page:

  • If you chose to have Zenefits Payroll automatically export runs, Zenefits Payroll will export information as soon as a run is processed for payment. You can expect to see it in Xero within 24 hours after it is processed.
  • If you chose to manually sync payroll information to Xero, Zenefits Payroll will only export pay run information when you click on the run in the Paid table to manually export it. You will not be able to manually export the run prior to the check date. 

To change between automatic and manual sync, see these instructions.
