The Paytools team is excited to announce that we’ve released a brand new feature, Payroll Tax Manager – an Australian payroll tax calculator, automatically calculating your monthly liability reading directly from Xero.

Not being able to automate payroll tax calculation has long been a pain point in Australia, leaving most to rely on homegrown, manual spreadsheets. This common bug-bear was what motivated us to bravely/foolishly take on developing a better solution for payroll tax management.

Our mission at Paytools is to make payroll better by tackling some of the unloved, manual and ignored problems. So, that brings us to our latest feature for Paytools! We’re proud of what we’ve produced so far with Payroll Tax Manager and it certainly beats spreadsheets!

Who is it ideal for?

Payroll Tax Manager is designed for Xero Bookkeepers, Accountants and Payroll people in Australia, looking for a better solution to streamline their payroll compliance, audit and workflow processes.

What problems does it solve?

With Payroll Tax Manager you can:

    • Automate monthly liability estimates reading Xero pay data
    • View when you’re approaching state tax thresholds
    • Make manual adjustments to include non-payroll earnings
    • Keep who/what/when audit trail of actions
