Xero is a cloud-based accounting software for small businesses, Accountants and Bookkeepers.

Being cloud-based means all the data you input can be accessed anywhere at any time. Cloud-based is especially good for workers on the move as Xero is so flexible. Xero also has an app, which can be accessed from iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets. You can log in at any time, any place as long as there is an internet connection.

Track your time – record the hours you work with the wide range of add-ons available, for example one add-on Xero can link with is Workflow Max. With Workflow Max, you can record your hours at a cost which can then be calculated by generating a report. This allows you to see which jobs are the most profitable.

With Xero, invoices can be sent remotely straight to the customer. You would then receive a notification to say they have opened the invoice, which can reduce the time it takes to get paid, therefore improving your cash flow. Xero can also link with your bank, credit card and PayPal. This is useful in reducing your workload as it can automatically match payments up to invoices, which just leaves you to approve them.

Reports and budgets can be created in seconds using real time data, which allows you to constantly see your financial position.
