Our in-house Xero expert and audit & accounts manager, Nathan Jones from our Chester office, shares his experience with Xero and what he believes to be the benefits of utilising the digital platform.

There are a range of tips and tricks that Xero offers such as improving cash flow and equipping businesses with the tools to oversee and manage their finances efficiently. The three biggest include:
We work closely with every client on Xero to help them to get up to speed with the platform. Whilst the platform is extremely user-friendly, there are various questions that we get asked on a regular basis:
As with any new digital platform, it takes time to understand its functionality and how to get the most out of what’s available. One aspect that many of our clients get wrong is entering every cost as a purchase invoice. Payments to HMRC for monthly PAYE, for example, is not a purchase invoice but rather a bank payment, whereas receipts from a supermarket for stationery is suitable to enter it as a purchase invoice.
