Why Xero Accounting Software is perfect for you and your business

Xero is described as ‘Beautiful Accounting Softwareand we couldn’t agree more with this statement. One of the most beautiful aspects of Xero is that whether your office is your living room, a dedicated office space, or your local coffee shop, Xero Accounting Software really is the right fit for everyone.

The perks of using Xero Accounting UK

As you might have gathered; we’re big fans of Xero Accounting Software. Here are just a few reasons you’ll love it too.

Cloud accounting

One of our favourite aspects of Xero is that it is ‘on the cloud’. That means you can access the software no matter where you are, providing you can access the internet.

Even better, we can access it at the same time as you without needing to worry about backups and version control issues. If there are any problems with a bookkeeping entry, just give us a ring and we can sort it out straight away.

Removed risk of mistakes

Xero accounting software takes its information directly from your online banking. This means that you can never make a mistake typing the numbers in! It saves bucketloads of time and is much more accurate.

Reliable, accurate information

Xero can be easily kept up to date – by the minute in fact. By uploading bank information daily, you can see exactly where you stand financially, whenever you want. You can make informed business decisions rather than relying on historic accounts or gut feeling.


Xero accounting software can be used ‘on the go’ with the easy-to-use Xero App. You can be on the train and sending out sales invoices to your customers. Gone are the days of waiting until you’re back in the office.

Environmentally friendly

Xero accounting software helps to reduce paper usage! Need we say anymore?

Digital accounting is playing a significant part in reducing paper waste due to the move to online platforms. When used in conjunction with Receipt Bank, purchase invoices and receipts can be scanned in and attached electronically to your Xero entries, making life simpler for you.

Intuitive features

Xero has been specifically designed to make life easier for those who use it. By setting up ‘rules’ within the software, Xero has the ability to automatically allocate items to the correct analysis code. It will recognise that, for example, ‘Aviva’ is an insurance company and will post it there for you. Additionally, it will notice that a bank receipt is an exact match for a sales invoice and ask you to confirm that this allocation is correct.

Debt collection

One of the lesser appreciated features of Xero online is their cleverly designed debt collection elements. You can automate the sending of statements and really keep on top of money that is owed to your business.

Invoices and statements can be easily sent by email, meaning that you save your time and there are no postage outgoings!

Easy app integration

Xero accounting software integrates with hundreds of Apps – from CRM systems to stock management. There is an endless list of digital solutions available to help you, which is extremely helpful when in business.
