Before processing your payroll in Xero, you need make sure any public holidays your employees are entitled to take are set up properly. This is done in the Holidays tab in the payroll settings area.
In this video tutorial, we go into the demo company to see how public holidays and holiday groups are set up in the Australian version of Xero.
Most public holidays are already set up in Xero for you and are allocated to holiday groups based on Australia’s states and territories.
There may be circumstances, however, when you need to add other public holidays such as local show holidays.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to set up a holiday group for Brisbane and then add the Ekka holiday to the group.
By the end of the video, you will know how to set up whatever public holidays and holiday groups you need for your business.
