Xero Cloud Accounting

Moving into a modern accounting world, we feel that it is vital that your accountant is accredited with the use of cloud accounting software like Xero.

By using Cloud software, and having live, up to date, financial information it allows us to provide a proactive service, giving instant support, management reports and making real-time recommendations, based on up to date figures.

We recommend using a combination of Xero and Dext to automate your bookkeeping procedures, to save you valuable time. Procedures which possibly took days on older software’s, now can take hours or even minutes!

Xero is our premium software, and offers some fantastic features such as; bank feeds, email invoicing, pay now buttons for enhanced cash flow, budgeting reports, unlimited users and our favourite – the comment feature where you can ask us a question directly linked to the item you wish to query.

We can offer discounts on the use of both these systems, if purchased through us.

Dext is a Xero approved App, which allows you to scan, email or photograph invoices and upload them directly to Xero. It removes the need for manual typing of invoices, saving vast amounts of time. In our opinion, it is a vital part of utilising Xero to its full potential.

Xero Training

We offer free webinar training guides to get you up and running on Xero, and can provide one to one training for a fixed price and ongoing support if required by our Xero certified advisors.
