I suggest you ...

Payroll Options

Would like to see a payroll service implemented; Maybe not a true payroll but at least the ability of tracking payments to employees without making them a vendor.

    KeyPay looks interesting. Do you know if it integrates with Zoho Books, Daniel?

  • Daniel Bryar commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    You need to integrate with KeyPay.

    It has a full REST API that does all of the required payroll functions including standard tax office reporting for UK, Australia and USA.

    In a twist of irony, KeyPay is the payroll platform used by QB (that everyone raves about).

    Dear ZOHO-Team
    As a partner we could barely generate sales pitches here in Switzerland, because there aren't any options for payroll. Zoho Books has a big lack in competition to other ERPS without that. As other votes mentioned before, at least some basic functions for payroll would be awesome. And maybe you can set it up more open so that the accountants from diffferent countries can customize it as they please. Would love to hear your reply.

    Forget state/country specific statutory compliances. ZOHObooks can have at the least basic features like:

    Employee Data, Attendance & relative Salary, Pay Slip, Employeewise Statement

    Kick Intuit's butt, by adding payroll functionality. I know that you are going through the states albeit slowly...You may want to step up production on this to compete with QuickBooks online. I think with proper payroll you can go head to head with them any day of the week because your product and various integrations are much more customizable and functional.

    You system, is almost perfect for Australian small business. The fact there is no payroll means you will not take ground on Xero until you have a payroll function. If you do add payroll then you will have all the functions needed in a small business that handles inventory, where as Xero do not do inventory well.

    Australian payroll would be swell. Any idea how far away this might be?

    We are getting by using KeyPay in conjunction with Books, but its really not ideal.

    Zoho is beta testing in California


    For all the rest of you asking for Zoho to work on it, they are, it takes time to get things right. Every state, country and region has their own rules that they have to account for and implement.

    Also, if you haven't already noticed as with all large platforms that are missing, you can at the very least integrate the software you are currently using.

    Many of you are acting entitled as if Zoho needs to provide you with every feature under the sun and that it should implement features faster than humanly possible. Go work in a development environment and see how brutal it is to take on and implement a small subset of the massive undertaking that Zoho has created already.

    They are creating an empire and Rome wasn't built in a day

    So this is the top item. Why is ZOHO not doing it? Please explain. You are working on other issues with 4 votes. Like really.

    dear i know you dont get everything in one software but the module employee and their pay slip should be a basic one. i have done many research on every software the ides of employee and pay slip is been fairly justify in Managerio software. kindly check in that we all need that feature. currently i am just using the tag option for making pay slip, it doesnt look professional

    With no fanfare or any notification that I saw, on 12/06/2018 I noticed that the payroll expenses that I batch post as manual journals are now recognized as expenses in the "Your Top Expenses" pie chart on the Dashboard. Thank you, Zoho, but why did it take so long? It doesn't really matter, I'm just happy that this shortcoming has finally been corrected.

    Now I won't have to dance around the issue when a client asks me why the pie chart doesn't show the payroll expense as one of the top expenses. This one small thing is a big step forward and it makes the software more credible and useful.

    My understanding is that Zoho are working actively on Payroll and are trialling in in the USA at the moment.

    The problem is that every country has its own system for managing payroll and this needs to be taken into account by Zoho. This is a huge project.

  • John Lane commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It is unbelievable--and a smack in the face to paying customers--that Zoho developers will not focus on this and add a payroll feature to Zoho Books when almost 2,000 votes have accumulated so far. If you don't have the technical savvy to program a full payroll module, at least make it so we can manually post a batch payroll entry in a manner that will be seen as an expense on the Dashboard in the "Your Top Expenses" pie chart. As it is today--and has been for YEARS!!!--I have to post the payroll through a general journal entry. And the expenses associated with the payroll are ignored on the dashboard because of a shortsighted programming decision.

    I personally have been asking--and waiting--for this feature for years. For years! How much longer before Zoho listens to its customers and makes this a priority? I'm just about ready to move on to Xero and leave Zoho Books back in the stone age where it belongs. I can't efficiently serve my bookkeeping clients with your software due to such limitations and I'm now down to having just one client on Zoho Books. The clock is running out.

    I have managed without a Payroll feature in the UK but cannot wait any longer.

    When will Zoho be adding Payroll for the UK version?

  • JohnP commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Not only do we need Payroll but also the ability to include PAYG in Quarterly BAS Report (W1 - W4)
    as well as the T1 - T9 Income Tax Instalment - Your BAS Implementation completely ignores these vital components.

    I would suggest that omitting these Tax codes would make your product Non-ATO Compliant?

    How many votes do you need to implement that features? We need payroll features.. we need payroll features.. we need payroll features.. yea haa!!
