“Amazing teaching by Raj, so much learnt in one day with lot of patience from Raj." Julia who attended the Xero Payroll course on 7 January 2019.


“I cannot speak too highly of the training you gave us, I would never have been clear without the course and I feel completely confident now. It was perfect, so simple and easy. I am recommending you to absolutely everyone.” Unsolicited email received from Lisa, designer and founder of an Haute Couture boutique, on 29 November 2018. After preparing and submitting her VAT return herself, Lisa later followed up with an email on 12 December 2018: "My only regret is that I did not do this earlier, I have wasted thousands and thousands of pounds on bookkeeping, my business finances are time consuming but as a complete novice your course was so clear and consise."

First hour has been really helpful especially for someone who has not used Xero and is responsible for setting it up.

"I successfully installed the software, sent all the RTI reports and completed my first payroll on Monday. Although the set up was very time consuming, I can safely say that it would not have been possible if I had not done your course." - Unsolicited email received from Samantha who attended the Sage 50 Payroll courses.




HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) have introduced Real Time Information (RTI) which has completely changed the way in which PAYE information is reported to HMRC.

With the introduction of RTI, this information will now have to be submitted electronically to HMRC every time an employee is paid i.e. on a weekly or monthly basis.


Xero Payroll is RTI compliant; by attending this one day trainer-led course, you will master Xero Payroll in a day and will comfortably be able to process employee salaries with ease.
