Maree Maxfield recently highlighted the fact that Xero is not able to handle organisations with a year-end date that does not also fall on a month-end date. So 31st March works fine - but if your business makes up its accounts to 15th March every year, you have a problem.
However, I don't think it's a problem that Xero need to solve - I believe that sometimes you have to change to…Continue

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. But there’s a story behind the numbers. Yes, a story behind the numbers in every business. In some cases, this story is never told in its entirety. As a
business owner, you may see chapters of the story by looking at the
numbers and attempting to interpret the meaning behind the numbers
yourself. Or get someone with more experienced eyes to view and
interpret the numbers for you. But most time this turns to to be…

Sorry to use this blog for selfish reasons but wondered if there were any vacancies out there for a Xero trained accountant who wants to join a forward looking Xero based practice, or as a self employed resource for a smaller practice?

Also fully accredited with Sage, Mamut and Iris practice suite
Wondered if any of you had come across the following and have any suggestions
I have a society that has an annual subscription, but allows its members to pay by standing order over 12 months. Therefore each month there are 100's of receipts for the same amount, which need to be allocated against the subscription invoice. Problem is that some people cancel their subs s/o and not notify the society, who need to monitor o/s amounts…Continue

News is just coming through from the other side of the planet (New Zealand and the ONYAs to be precise) that Xero has won three out of the four awards it was nominated for, namely “Most Outstanding Website”, “Best User Experience” and “Best Web Application”.
