AU Payroll | Employee - Field for Employee Number
Include a new field in Payroll Employee data with employee number. Employees will have a unique identifier in Xero. For any new employees, Xero will generate a unique number.

Having an employee ID field is so necessary. Xero should also include this employee ID in all the payroll so that users can do in depth analysis using the downloaded payroll data. This is a no brainer.

Just moved from another payroll program and miss this so much. Very time consuming trying to sort and find without it. Would be great to also be able sort using employee number.

Can we please have a spot where we can enter an employee number? Particularly coming from another platform where it was used.

I've been an accountant for over 20 years and I've never seen a payroll module that doesn't have a field for employees number. This is a major shortfall.
Is there a quick solution pending you guys working on developing & implementing this function?

Hi It is very important to have an unique identification number for each employee, particularly when there are common names and names that are difficult. If a number is very easy to refer. Please add another field for it.

The current ATO advice when asked how to set up STP in Xero correctly for multi-hiring purposes (STP requires a unique identifier for employees in these cases) is to change accounting software. Multi-hiring (same person hired in more than one role) is a normal practice in lots of workplaces.

Super fund clearing house requires an ID, so we have to manually record outside Xero.

Our global business needs this on our payroll reports.

XERO, Please action

Hi It is very important for some of my clients to have an unique identification number for each employee, particularly when there are common names and names that are little to pronounce. A number is very easy to refer. Please add another field for it. Thanks

We don't have many employees at the moment, but would love for xero to automate an employee number
Kristen Vink commented
We are needing this field to be able to work with a third-party timesheet system, may need to look at using different software if we can't get resolved

a dedicated default super fund set up for employees without their own fund

Is this something that is going to happen?
