Register for this popular online accounting platform and claim a free 30-day trial. Xero has over 3 million users and lets you take command of all your accounting needs “in the cloud”.
You can send invoices and quotes, enter bank transactions, monitor expenses, track projects, generate reports, and lots more. Xero is especially suitable for freelancers and small businesses, but even if you are a larger company, the platform could be suitable for you.
The service is available via desktop and mobile devices, including tablets and has a user-friendly interface centred around a dashboard. This gives you a brief overview of your business financial health.
One of the best features of Xero is bank connectivity. You can connect your existing bank account and automatically load in all the transactions, saving you valuable time.
Additional features include the ability to give access to your accountant, VAT return submission, mileage tracking (great if you operate on the road), payroll management, receipt storage, plus the ability to send quotes and accept digital payments. There’s tons of other features to explore, too.
The system is also compatible with a wide range of third-party apps and services, which gives you further scope to expand the functionality of your business accounting.
Three plans are available: Starter, Standard (the most popular), and Premium. There’s optional add-ons available for an additional fee.
Xero is HMRC-recognised and compatible with the “Making Tax Digital” software, enabling you to quickly submit your accounts.
