What are some reasons that Xero is the go to accounting software?


Xero can make your business life easier

  • Tasks such as invoicing, reporting and even JobKeeper payment allocations can be automated, relieving you of the burden to remember these tasks


It connects straight to the Cloud

  • For Apple users out there, Xero is automatically backed up on iCloud, meaning that whether you switch from an iPad, iMac, or iPhone, all the updated data will be right there where you left it


It connects straight to your bank

  • Xero connects straight to your bank and provides you with an up to date info sheet about your current cash flow. Transactions automatically flow into Xero, and these can be reconciled every day
  • There is also currency conversion, meaning that for a business with plans to be a global entity it is much easier to do business internationally! Xero has an inbuilt currency converter so that all your calculations can be done there and then


It allows you to collaborate with others in real time

  • Comments can be left between users so that business data and thoughts can be discussed in real time
  • Bookkeepers are able to create invoices and submit them for approval. They can also monitor and send through timesheets for employees to be paid appropriately


Everything can be found in one place

  • Xero is a powerful and all in one answer to the stresses of your businesses, primarily because records are kept tidy, and everything runs smoothly
  • Bank and financial information can be easily synced so that your bookkeeper/ accountant can easily find what they need. This way can save both time and money


It can be easily integrated with other software

  • Xero already works well by itself, but depending on what industry you are with, it can work easily with a range of other programs and software
  • Providers can be synced to work with Xero, as it is proven to be one of the most compatible programs that integrate with over 800+ apps
