What is Batch Payment approval?

Instead of paying Bills one by one, you can prepare a Bulk Payment for Bills whose due dates are within a close range. Such payments are for large amounts and, therefore, might be subject to additional approval.

Batch Payment requests are created as a combination of Approved and Awaiting Payment Bills and submitted as a single request for approval.

Once such a request has been approved, the respective Batch Payment file gets created in a connected Xero account against the selected bank account.

Please note: due to Xero restrictions, Batch Payments are always created in the base currency of the respective Organisation. If a Bill is in a different currency, it cannot be added to the Batch Payment.
