Additional payroll options are coming to Xero users as the cloud accounting software maker signed a partnership with online payroll service SurePayroll.

The deal comes just one week after Xero linked up with small business-focused ZenPayroll, and nearly a year after its general ledger integration with the Run Powered by ADP cloud-based payroll platform for small business owners.

Through its partnership with SurePayroll, small businesses and accounting professionals can manage their payroll and finances in the cloud while providing Xero customers access to additional offerings including 401(k) plans, health insurance, workers compensation, employee screening among others.

"SurePayroll's online app makes a lot of sense for us to work with as small businesses are doing more on the go and they have mobile optimized apps," said president of Xero's U.S. operations Jamie Sutherland. "Our integration with SurePayroll empowers accountants and small business owners with a robust online solution that puts critical data at their fingertips and ultimately helps them better run their business."
