This is Figured’s fifth year at Fieldays alongside Xero. In 2014, the ‘farming in the cloud’ concept came to life at Fieldays. Since then, we’ve continued to see this message resonate with more and more farmers.
For three days last week, hundreds of our accounting, bookkeeping and ecosystem partners came together for Xerocon Atlanta. It was our largest Xerocon in the Americas to date, and it was phenomenal to see partners from around the world (15 countries to be exact!) come together to learn and grow as a community.
It’s been a day full of action here at Xerocon Atlanta. We chose Atlanta, Georgia to play host to Xerocon in the Americas this year because of its energy. So it was only fitting that we brought in keynote speaker, Will Packer, to bring his trademark zest to Xerocon.
The Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT deadline is drawing closer. It’s less than a year until UK businesses that are VAT registered and above the threshold will be required to keep their records digitally, and submit VAT returns to HMRC using MTD-compatible software.
We caught up with XPAC member and founder of the global bookkeeping firm, Bean Ninjas, Meryl Johnston to talk about building and connecting a global team as they head into the busiest season for accountants.
If you’re an accountant in public practice, it’s likely you’re going to be affected by phase two of the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (AML/CFT). This Act is designed to help detect and deter money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
There are so many great things to eat, drink and see in Atlanta, you might be wondering how you’ll choose while you’re in town for Xerocon. Never fear! We’ve done the hard work for you, narrowing down the list to some of the city’s best destinations (who also happen to be our customers).
Xerocon is a must-do experience for all of our accounting and bookkeeping partners. As Xerocon Brisbane approaches, we talk to Brad Golchin, from Wise Advice, about his journey with Xero, and his experiences attending Xerocon.
