Xero is the perfect accounting program for small business owners! It allows you to actually see your cash flow as it's happening, and of course allows you to create invoices and import/code your bank transactions. Really loving this program!

Sensational! this online accounting has made my life so much easier already after only a month! The changeover from my other accounting software was simple enough for me to figure out on my owner, and the import process was accurate and easy. The importing of online statements makes the process so easy and removes the human error of manual data entry. Safe to say, I Love this product!

Just got the Xero for dummies book. Love it, it has reassured me what I am doing is correct and after reading only a couple of chapters I can navigate my way round the dashboard etc much quicker. Thank you for another great help tool.

Streamlines the payment process. Tells me when a customer has seen a sent invoice form. Payment is efficient and makes the online payment process easy both for the business and the consumer. I didn't like not being able to add attachments to the invoices, but other than that it has served my basic needs well.
