Book Description

The book begins by tackling the initial set up of Xero to ensure optimum configuration for success. From there, the next logical step is to set up the automated bank feeds, which is the best innovation in bookkeeping in years. Now that your bank data is ready for importing, we will tackle the most common transactional items, being sales invoices and purchase bills. Despite these being largely transactional, we will work through ways to automate the process where possible, save time, and avoid potential human errors along the way. Then we will start checking reports and analyze what is working or not and make changes to workflows and setups. The end result is that you will have a fully configured system ready to use and years of experience offering best practice solutions to what have been, for years, unnecessary roadblocks in your business.
