Is XERO a good accountancy software?
If you own a business, you already know that bookkeeping and accounting are critical duties for any company, especially one that wants to flourish in the long run. You'll never know if your business is profitable or if you can afford to buy new assets or expand if you don't have a good accounting system in place. If you don't have accounting software for your business, you're missing out.
Many of the business owners we work with have never considered utilising a computer-based accounting system, preferring instead to handle their bookkeeping by hand. This choice is typically connected to the fear of change; the worry it will be too cost prohibitive, and the fear that a lack of bookkeeping expertise (sometimes no grasp of bookkeeping at all) will be too great (and timely) a hurdle to overcome. You are not alone if you fall into one of these categories. However, we can tell you that this is not the case, especially when using the appropriate software.

If you operate a small business and choose to do your own bookkeeping, bookkeeping errors may devastate your budget and result in costly invoice problems. Xero can assist you in avoiding these problems by monitoring the data you've input and notifying you if any errors arise. The days of misplaced decimal points and erroneous addition and subtraction will be over.
- Xero can help you with time-consuming chores.
Tired of wasting time on boring and repetitive chores that prevent you from doing projects that will increase the value of your company? Allow Xero to handle the heavy lifting for you. Xero's automatic 'Invoice Reminders' can handle all of the chasing for you. If an invoice is due, it will automatically send an email to your customers.
- Join forces with your accountant
The Single Ledger is how Xero refers to it, but it's simply a single piece of data that both you and (hopefully) accountable can interact with. Communication is crucial in every partnership or successful connection. It saves you the time and effort of exporting data and emailing it to your accountant, just to have it become out of date soon after. It guarantees that all parties are working with the most up-to-date information, allowing you to identify and address any issues that may arise, as soon as they occur.
- We're certified partners.
