First of all, Xero is a cloud accounting software solution designed to make running your business accounts quick and simple while giving you powerful insights, which combined with our accounting expertise, will help you identify areas where you can improve your profitability.
As Xero runs in the cloud it’s quick and easy to connect everything together and access all your information from any device, anywhere. With their simple plans and optional extras, you won’t be paying for features you don’t need.
Xero helps make running your business easier by making those boring tasks that you always put off, like reconciling bank transactions or sending invoice reminders, quick and simple. Xero has many other features including:
As Xero integrates with the majority of the banks in the UK you can quickly pay any bills that come in from your suppliers, keeping them happy! You can also track your bills to see how your business’s expenses are changing over time, keeping you in control of cash flow.
Xero helps you easily submit your VAT returns to HMRC as their system is compatible with HMRC. Xero will calculate your VAT for you, help you manage the VAT transaction details and submit VAT returns that are compatible with making tax digital (MTD).
Xero’s expense manager helps you to capture costs, view your spending and if you have employees, they can submit expenses and quickly be reimbursed. With their mobile app keeping track of expenses is as easy as taking a picture of your receipts.
With the invoicing and online payment features, you can get paid on time without the hassle of chasing. The invoice you send will have a pay now option that allows your customers to quickly pay you through debit cards, credit cards or even direct debits through a secure portal.
With many of our clients working in the construction industry, we know the challenges these businesses face when it comes to tracking project profitability. With Xero, it’s easy to create quotes, keep track of expenses and the time you spend on a project, which can then be added to an invoice. You can also view the profitability of each job through their reports and dashboard features so you can quote more accurately in the future.
Xero payroll connects your workforce to their finances and makes it easy for you to track employee leave and the time spent working using timesheets, all on top of paying their salary. The payroll feature also makes it easy to report the right information to HMRC and gives employees access to their payslips, submit leave requests and add timesheets through their own portal.
Quickly and easily run reports, track and predict future cash flow and view dashboards with the latest and most important information for your business. These features give you insights into the financial health of your business allowing you to plan for your future growth.
With everything that Xero can do you’re probably wondering why you’d even need an accountant! Here at Steven Burton & Co, we’re a Xero Silver Champion partner, Xero Migration Certified and our team has multiple certified advisors on hand to help.
This means that if you’re new to Xero we can help you migrate from your old accounting software such as Sage or Quickbooks so you don’t need to start from scratch. If you’re already using Xero then we can jump right in and start to dig into the data and provide you with actionable insights.
While Xero can pull everything together for you and simplify your accounts, as chartered certified accountants we can then use this data to tell you how your business is performing. We do this by really digging into the details of where you can increase your profitability, reduce overheads and we can help plan for your future success.
As Xero charge a monthly subscription for their software, we will include this in our invoice (which you can now track with your new Xero subscription!) so that there is just one payment to make each month, making your accounts simple.
We particularly think that the mobile invoicing aspect is helpful for our clients, giving them flexibility of access to their accounts. They have features that help you manage every aspect of your accounts, connecting to your bank accounts can help you generate easy quotes, records and data about your business, saving you time as you don’t need to enter this data yourself.
Xero can also be accessed by employees to add expense claims, view payslips and time sheets online, connecting your workforce and their finances. Furthermore, the dashboard feature visualises your cash expenses, so that you can stay on top of where your money is going.
