Seven ways Xero can help your business
Using bank feeds Xero automatically imports all your bank, credit card and Paypal transactions so manual input of your bank transactions is a thing of the past. Even better, the intuitive bank reconciliation within Xero does all the work for you so all you need to do is quickly check, click OK and like magic your bank is reconciled.
As you can use Xero whenever, wherever you are, you can raise invoices on your phone or tablet as you go. No more wasted Sunday afternoons spent hunched over your computer doing your invoicing. Because you’re invoicing faster you’ll get paid faster.
The invoice templates are fully customisable so you can create professional looking invoices that can be issued by email and repeat invoicing can even be automated.
Never lose those receipts again
Using clever add-ons such as Dext you can simplify your bookkeeping and ensure all your expenses are logged in real time. No more lost receipts, no more shoeboxes under the bed to fight through at the end of the year, simply take a photo of your receipts on your smartphone and let Receipt Bank take away the boring admin. Best of all the image of the receipt is permanently logged against the expense within Xero so job done as far as record keeping is concerned. Reclaim your attic/cupboards as seven years’ worth of receipts and invoices can be safely shredded.
Your business will be in better shape
With real time financial information at your fingertips you’ll always know where you stand and can stay in control of your finances at all times. You’ll always know if you’re making money (and how much!) and be better placed to spot trends before they become a problem.
