How Xero Helped Me Get My Life Back

When was the last time you were able to enjoy your day off? Or even take one? How many days in the past month have you spent pouring over your books, trying to make sense of your financials? How much time have you wasted digging through receipts and trying to chase down your information from various clients, vendors, banks or credit card companies? Are you still using an accounting system that relies on saving documents to a hard drive rather than the cloud? Does your system make it difficult to import and update records or run reports? Are you tired of losing data and sales to slow processing speeds? Is your software compatible with multiple brands and tools? Are you still relying on old fashioned spread sheets, or worse – do you just cram your bills and receipts into drawers or shoe boxes and try to pretend they don’t exist? If any of these statements sound like they apply to your life and your business, it’s no wonder that you feel tired, frustrated, exhausted and perhaps tempted to pull your hair out! Who has time to keep up with their finances when they have personal commitments, demands from clients...

5 Simple And Quick Shortcuts In Xero To Make Your Life Easier

Xero is known for its ease of use and fast processing times, two benefits which make keeping up with the books less difficult for most small business owners.  Despite these features, it’s likely that there are times that you long for a simpler way to complete some common tasks. The following five Xero shortcuts make using your accounting system even easier! 1. Dates and More Dates! Whether you are adding a date to manual transactions, entering your payables or creating invoices, there are a lot of dates to keep up with. Xero knows how frustrating this task can be, and so provides a host of date shortcuts that let you quickly enter a specific date without having to type out the full 10 digits. For example, if you don’t want to have to enter the 10 digit number for a specific date, just hit the tab key or enter the letter t in the date field to populate it with today’s date. Entering the “tom” in the same field will automatically populate it with tomorrow’s date, and “+[number]” will enter the date that is [number] from today’s date.

How Xero Improved My Cash Flow

It takes more than earning a profit to stay in business. Unless you are able to properly manage your cash flow, you run the very real risk of not having enough cash on hand to cover your operating expenses.
