Well, unless you want to be stuck with legacy hardware and software systems, outdated infrastructure, accountants from the stone age or time-consuming processes then it is probably time to change. Here are a few reasons why Xero should be part of your daily life:

Automatic bank feeds

No need to manually capture or import bank statements. Xero has automatic bank feeds allowing your bank statements to automatically import from your bank into your bank reconciliation. This saves you time and effort allowing you to easily reconcile your transactions.

User friendly and understandable for the non-accountant

You said debits and credits what? Instead of requiring a masters degree in accounting, you will be able to easily interact with the system as it conveys accounting in everyday terms.


Working from home today and from the office tomorrow? Oh no wait, actually I am planning a week away. No worries! Your data is available everywhere from any device. Just make sure you have that all-important internet connection.

Integration and apps

The app store is like a treasure chest. Choose from an array of meaningful apps that contribute to the success of your business. Anything from CRM, inventory, expense approvals, debtors management and many more. The choice is yours, choose wisely.

So cloud accounting sounds great, but what makes Xero the preferred system?
