Xero‘s tagline is “Beautiful Accounting Software,” and I absolutely agree. Xero is the best accounting software platform that I have seen made available to small business owners. I am a Xero certified partner.
Xero is the accounting software platform that allows me to uphold my firm’s core values of simplicity, value, and effectiveness. It is simple enough for small business owners to use, with minimal accounting knowledge, yet has enough depth to provide the functions I need as a CPA working in public accounting. The price is affordable, providing the value needed, and the software is entirely cloud based – the first effective and truly cloud based system that I’ve experienced, that is still affordable to most small business owners.
I have many years of experience with Quickbooks, both as a small business owner and as a CPA in public accounting working with clients. In addition I have experience with Creative Solutions. I can work with you with whatever software you have, but I highly recommend converting to Xero. I WILL CONVERT YOUR BUSINESS TO XERO AT NO CHARGE.
Xero offers all of the standard accounting functions – General Ledger, Financial Reporting, Accounts Receivable and Invoicing, Accounts Payable, Payroll, and Inventory Tracking. In addition it has a fully integrated point of sale system add-on.
Some of my favorite Xero features:
- Live Bank Feeds – No more entering transactions from your bank account.
- Unlimited Users – You can set up as many users as you want, all for the same price, and give them different levels of access to your accounting software. I can log in and get the information I need. Your absentee owners and board members can log in (saving you extra work). Your employees can log in, enter their hours, and save them for you to approve for the next payroll. And of course you can log in and do whatever you need to, whenever you need to, whether you’re at home, at work, or in Bali.
- Cloud Based With Mobile Apps – You can log in from anywhere you can get an internet connection.
- Track Expenses While Out of the Office – You and your employees can take pictures of your receipts when you’re out of the office and upload them directly from your mobile device to create an expense report ready for approval within Xero.
