What does this mean to you?

Xero on line accounting software is perfect for barristers. You can use it as much or as little as you want:  simply use it as a record of your business expenses - or much, much more.

You will be able to enter details of your expenses quickly and efficiently so you can keep track of all your costs.

You can also upload PDF copies of your bills and attach to the transactions.

You can check your financial information on the go at any time via your PC or mobile device.

You can work collaboratively with us as we will also be able to access your data at the same time as you. If you aren't sure about something, just call us and we'll look at the same information as you are seeing.

You can prepare and submit your quarterly VAT return via Xero, without going through the Government Gateway.

If you choose to, you can monitor both your business and your personal finances through Xero.

Choosing to monitor your business and private bank accounts means you will have a real-time view of your cashflow. A summary of all your bank account details and balances will be shown on your Dashboard and you have the ability to drill down to see transaction details.

Xero has made bank reconcilliation very straightforward. your bank statements can be automatically imported and coded into Xero as often as you want.

Instant up to date reporting means at the end of your financial year we can access your records as soon as you tell us they are ready. This avoids the cumbersome transfer of data that can be corrupted or is out-of-date.

Xero accounting software is very simple to use but to make it even easier for you to follow, we have put together some short training videos specifically for our barrister clients.  As a client you'll have direct access to these, and of course you can call us any time with specific queries.
