Xero does have a number of options. 

You can have a user with invoice-only access which will allow them to post invoices and bills and enter payments against them. They then wouldn't have access to bank reconciliation functions or reporting. 

You can have a standard user with limited access to reporting so this user could complete the bank recs, edit settings and invoices/bills but not access reports. 

Loft maintains advisor level settings for the API access but I don't think anyone really needs that unless its your actual accountant. 

Important to note that you have to specifically give users access to payroll. 

Here is a screen shot of your options when you set up or edit a user.
