What's New in Zoho Books - February

Hi, users!


We've come with a bunch of new updates and enhancements for a fresh start to 2021. Here’s what’s new this February:


 Zoho Books - SurePayroll Integration (US)


Automate your payroll accounting with the Zoho Books - SurePayroll integration. SurePayroll is an online payroll management software that offers one-click payroll with federal and labor law compliance and integration with time and attendance systems. This integration fetches data from SurePayroll to Zoho Books and records them in the respective journals. These transactions will later be collated and put together as reports.

To integrate: Go to Settings > Integrations > Other Apps and select SurePayroll.


On successful integration, all your SurePayroll transactions will be automatically fetched into Zoho Books. Learn more about the integration from our help document.


Quarterly Return Monthly Payment(QRMP) Scheme (India)


Businesses with a turnover less than ₹5 crores can now enable the QRMP scheme from Settings. If you have enabled this option, GSTR 1 and GSTR 3B will be generated on a quarterly basis from the next quarter. However, you can pay the taxes monthly.
