What is Xero?
Xero is one of the most popular and commonly used accounting tools available. The cloud-based software allows accountants, bookkeepers, and business owners to manage their finances and everyday tasks in real-time from anywhere with an internet connection. Xero has a long list of features that are specifically designed to help businesses be successful with their accounting and overall growth.
Whilst its ability to use recent transactions to give you key numbers can help you make important business decisions easier and relieves the stresses that are often linked with your company’s accounts, its integration with more than 600 apps also enables you to access features you already use to create a personalised program that will help your business thrive.
How can a Xero certified advisor help your business?
If you are using Xero at the moment but maybe feel you’re not getting the most from it, our advisors can smoothly integrate into your digital bookkeeping because they already know how to use the platform.
They will be on hand to help you navigate the features of the platform and answer any questions you might have. Even when we’re managing your accounting for you, it’s important to still understand how to use Xero effectively and interpret the data it provides.
If you’re planning on switching to Xero but haven’t yet made the transition, we can help you move to the platform and complete the setup process quickly and accurately. Ultimately, no matter what stage you are with Xero, our certified advisors will help you use it to work more efficiently, minimise errors in your accounts, and prevent any problems from arising.
What does it mean to be a Xero certified advisor?
To achieve Xero certification, our team has completed the Xero advisor certification course.
This course teaches accountants how to use all the functions that Xero’s accounting software has to offer. It included learning about contacts, fixed assets, inventory, banking, quotes, invoices, purchase orders, bills, expenses, reporting, and other advanced tools. The course was designed by Xero to provide accountants with the skills to use the software to its maximum capabilities.

No, when our accountants have gained their certification, they are required by Xero to do quarterly assessments by answering set questions. Additionally, re-certification is needed after 12 months. This procedure is in place to ensure our advisors never fall behind and always have the latest knowledge and developments from Xero.
