About

Xero is a multiplatform accounting software that is suitable for a medium to large business based on its expensive pricing and extended features. Xero allows you to create payslips, has built-in timesheets and provides detailed payroll reports. Xero provides HR, time management and more. Further, it provides you with 24/7 support and lots of training to get things started. Their mobile app has many features but does not enable you to create payslips, this would be a disadvantage for business owners on the go.
