Unable to add Pay Template Earnings Line for Earnings Rate ID | Xero Error


Type Feature Error Name
Sync error Employee file Unable to add Pay Template Earnings Line for Earnings Rate ID as this is auto generated by the application.


This error occurs when an employee file in Xero does not have an ordinary earnings rate assigned to their pay template. When Employment Hero encounters this issue, it will not synchronise the affected employee file over to your Xero platform.


Adding an ordinary earnings rate to the employee's pay template within their Xero employee file and then re-syncing the two platforms will resolve this issue.
