What Is Xero
Should Small Business Use It?

Xero is cloud-based accounting software. It’s used all over the world, but it was invented right here in New Zealand by a business owner, just like you, looking to make his accounting easier and more reliable by using modern technology.

Being cloud-based means Xero lets you access your books (and get real time financial info or complete tasks) anytime, anywhere. Sounds good, right? And that’s just one of the benefits. As expert Xero certified advisors who have helped many businesses switch to Xero, we’ve seen firsthand how it helps small businesses thrive.

Improve cashflow and save money

Xero lets you send instant invoices. It also offers multiple online payment options to make it easier for your customers to pay you faster.

Because Xero works in real-time, you’re always up to date. That means you’ll never miss a bill’s due date, you can manage debtors better, and avoid large tax bills and penalty fees.

Plus, because Xero is easy to use day to day, it streamlines mundane processes, so you no longer have to pay your accountant do them.

Improve efficiency and save time

 

Save all your templates in one place and copy similar tasks so you don’t have to waste time creating new ones. You can also photograph and save receipts here too.

Save time by delegating. Xero allows you to give staff certain permissions, like the ability to upload receipts, raise purchase orders and send invoices.

And with the mobile app, you can literally dip in and check on things anytime, anywhere; a great use of any unexpected down-time. All your data is stored in the cloud, so you can invoice, quote, add receipt, approve expenses and reconcile from your phone all on the go.

Stay in control and always know how you’re performing

 

Directly linked to your bank accounts, Xero gives you a daily snapshot of your cash position, so you can catch issues early and plan ahead.

You can collaborate with your accountant, asking us questions and working together in real-time. This means that any changes we make immediately show at your end too. We can also create personalised reports for you to access anytime.

Keep your business information safe

 

We get asked a lot, how safe is Xero seeing as it is cloud-based? We can assure you it’s sound, with financial and customer data protected by multiple layers of security.

There’s a two-step authentication process for an added layer of protection; you can control the level of access any other users (your staff) have; and all your data and info is backed up automatically.

Look professional

 

We talked before about how Xero helps to streamline your business. Complete with customisable templates, you simply add your logo and personalise your invoices to achieve a professional look for even the smallest business. 

Simple and fair pricing structure

 

You’ll also find another benefit of Xero is the convenient package pricing; it’s transparent and is certainly a tool for small businesses that gives you maximum bang for your buck.

Easy to switch

 

Xero is easy to install and you don’t need any accounting knowledge to use it. We are Xero accounting software experts and certified advisors. We have lots of experience helping business owners get it set up, and our own training specialists, help you learn how to run it too. They say Xero takes the mystery out of accounting but often we find our clients enjoy knowing we’re right there for ongoing advice and support.
