Payroll Training Course Integrations: Square Payroll versus Xero?

Now that paying by card is the norm, retailers have needed to adapt to the cashless customer.  If you’ve been to some local markets recently, maybe a sporting club canteen or even your regular café, you may have noticed that you’re tapping your card on a little white square instead of an EFTPOS machine.

Block Inc. – previously known as Square Inc – is a point-of-sale (POS) system winning over retailers and enterprises across the world.  And it’s not just little white payment terminals, Square offers a range of technology and services that range from POS to payroll to inventory to marketing, AND, they recently purchased AfterPay!

Square integrates with Xero, and considering its popularity, let’s break down what Square is and how it compares to other Xero integrations like Planday.

STP Phase 2 Training Added to Xero Payroll Course – Learn ALL Payroll Courses Across Multiple Software in Advanced Certificate in Payroll Administration

EzyLearn had added Single Touch Payroll (STP) Phase 2 Training to our Xero Payroll Administration Training Course.

As Xero continues to be one of the leading accounting program for Aussie small businesses, we’ve been updating our courses to stay up to date with changes.  We’ve also recently added Xero My Payroll content to this course.

The Australian government launched STP in 2016, where employers with over 9 employees must report their payroll information for each pay run to the ATO.  When the ATO introduced STP Phase 2 earlier this year, some of the reporting obligations changed.

Here’s what you need to know about STP Phase 2 reporting in Xero, and how EzyLearn’s got you covered with the training.

Engaging a New Worker? Here Are The Things You Need To Do, particularly if you’re classified by the ATO as a withholder:

There’s lots to do when businesses engage a new worker.  As an employer, you’ll be busy going through the onboarding process and showing your new employee the ropes, but there are other important things to do when you add a new member to your team.

Keeping accurate records complete with the right information is essential for businesses to maintain, and that means updating and adding data when engaging a new worker.  Here are some things to keep in mind as you go through this process:

ATO Announces Changes to Single Touch Payroll & EzyLearn has New STP Phase 2 Training Materials

In 2016 the Australian government launched Single Touch Payroll (STP) as part of the Budget Savings (Omnibus) Act 2016.  It’s a mandatory obligation for employers with over 9 employees to report their payroll information for each pay run to the ATO. 

The idea is to reduce the burden on employers having to report information to multiple government agencies.  With STP, employers can report all this information to the ATO through their approved accounting software (like QuickBooks Online, Xero, and MYOB).

But now the rules have changes… AND our Payroll Courses have already been updated!

Xero Me – the App That Prepares Xero Users for Planday Acquisition

Xero Me App Screens - Employees can request leave, submit expense claims and view payslips - Best Xero Online Training Courses - EzyLearn

In June 2021 I announced a new Workforce Management Cast Study in development. In their most recent annual report to shareholders Xero announced the acquisition of yet another “integration” that sets it up to become the Sage of Small Business Accounting.

Sage and other ERM’s work on the basis of modules that provide a specific functionality but until now it was only really relevant for the big end of town. Now Xero will capture revenue from several apps rather than charge one price that includes everything. It’s going back to the days of Attache!

Planday or Plan a Week – Rostering, Attendance and Annual Leave – Xero or not? Attn: New Workforce Management Case Study in Production

Planday purchased by Xero - Workforce Management - Scheduling and Roster online training courses - EzyLearn

Xero is well known for purchasing apps which integrate with it and provide vertical integration. The best known acquisition in recent years is the purchase of Hubdoc for receipt capture. This made Xero compete directly with some of the other companies who’ve been doing this for a while like Dext (formerly Receipt Bank) and AutoEntry. 

Well they’ve done it again in the purchase this year of Planday in Europe for staff rostering, attendance and reporting. But how will they compete with QuickBooks Online and KeyPay?

Payroll & staff underpayments affect you even if Xero, QBO or MYOB say it’s easy

Payroll Training Courses Online using Xero, MYOB & QuickBooks Online - underpayment of staff can be fixed with a payroll audit

It seems to be the season for companies admitting that they’ve underpaid their employees. Bunnings admitted to underpaying employees for 8 years, Woolworths has underpaid over 6,000 employees, Celebrity Chefs have been caught underpaying and even the City of Fremantle will shell out half a million in back pay to underpaid staff!

The scariest news article I read was in the Sydney Morning Herald where dozens of small businesses were caught underpaying staff! It was revealed by the Fair Work Ombudsman as a result of audits they performed on cheap Sydney eateries  which are EVERYWHERE! Here’s what you can do about it

Sage One Accounting Training Course Manual and Workbook - Daily Transactions, data entry, AR & AP

Sage One is a relative newcomer to the cloud accounting software space but it has the backing of a massive company in the enterprise accounting (or ERP space). 

With the aggressive and smart marketing machine that Xero is, it’s little wonder they would get the attention of larger accounting software publishers like Sage. Sage One is a logical place for the software giant to get business customers while they are small and then upgrade them all the way.

The dollar is tanking, trade is down, house prices are still going down, consumer spending is the lowest for a decade, wage growth is slow! It sounds pretty bad when you read the news and business articles isn’t it?

One thing I’ve noticed for sure is that course prices are going down and competition is increasing, not just from other physical training centres in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth but also larger US and overseas companies who will promise anything to make a sale!

MYOB Payroll Administration Essentials Training Courses

One thing is essential when you operate a small business with staff — that is your payroll obligations. I wrote about a hairdressing salon owner a few months ago who told me how easy payroll was to manage using a printed timesheet book. However, most tech-savvy people prefer to use software. 

MYOB Essentials is targeting payroll management. They provide a cheap and easy online software package that is preferable for most people to using a manual book or spreadsheet. However, MYOB Essentials is different to MYOB AccountRight. Continue reading MYOB Payroll Administration Essentials Training Courses
