What Is XERO?

Xero is the latest trend to hit the Australian Accounting scene. You may have heard about it, but may not actually know what all the fuss is about.

Xero is accounting software which is based in the cloud. You access the software through your web browser and are never required to install anything onto your computer (no more trying to keep up with updates, they’re all installed automatically FREE OF CHARGE!).

Xero was voted as the Number 1 Most Innovative Growth Companies by Forbes.

Why We Love XERO:

Bank Feeds – No more entering your bank statements into your bookkeeping software! It is all loaded directly into XERO and updated daily. This saves A LOT of time.

Automatic Bank Reconciliations – Xero gives you the ability to save common occurring transactions so that it automatically allocates them to correct account (once you confirm it, of course). Xero will even suggest to you which account to post a transaction to, all based on where you had previously allocated a transaction of a similar nature.

Cloud Based Software – This allows us (the accountant) to access your file whenever you need us to! Bookkeeping support has never been easier! This also allows you to invoice on the fly, no more waiting to get back to the computer to write up an invoice, do it immediately on your phone whilst the customer/client is still standing in front of you. The sooner you invoice, the sooner you can be paid!

Multi user access – You have the ability to invite multiple users to access your software. Two people can access the file at the same time.
