We have some great news that we’re excited to share with you! Xero is being upgraded to business edition for every centre at no extra charge. Using Xero helps to streamline tasks and increase efficiency so you can spend less time on accounting requirements. For centres that have already been upgraded you will no longer be invoiced from March 2019.

Here are some of the features and benefits of the Xero Business Edition

* Organise your bills – send bills you receive via email straight into Xero so you never miss a payment, and if you do business with other Xero users, the Xero-to-Xero network allows you to send invoices directly into their Xero account and vice versa
* Beautiful invoices – convert your quotes into invoices to save on data entry or simply create a new invoice which can be email to your customers
* Automated invoice reminders – get Xero to do the debtor chasing for you by setting automatic invoice reminders
* Work on the go – download the mobile app to make working on the go even easier
* Quick quotes – create simple quotes to email to your parents
* Save time with bulk payments – pay suppliers in bulk and reduce data entry errors by using the batch payment functionality
* Fast payments – connect with a payment service such as Stripe, PayPal or GoCardless to collect online payments and get those invoices paid faster
* Connect with 700+ apps – supercharge your business by connecting with other apps such as Infoodle, Spotlight, Hubdoc and more
* Business insights – get real-time insights into how your business is performing by viewing the dashboard and using the customisable reports in Xero
* Xero Expenses – use Xero Expenses to create expense claims and save receipts; one active user is included free within your new Xero subscription
* Xero Projects – add Xero Projects to your subscription for an additional fee to get a real-time view of how all your jobs are tracking financially

Xero will also provide free training to help you get up to speed with how to best use Xero business edition for your business. We’ll be in touch soon to provide more details on how you can register for their upcoming webinar.
