Anna from Curious Grace
Yarraville and Clifton Hill, Melbourne
A childhood spent constructing elaborate cubby houses from furniture and blankets meant I was destined to work in interior design. At Curious Grace we’re all about creating beautiful spaces, so it fits we use beautiful accounting software. Xero seamlessly links our sales to our accounts, and we can log in from anywhere. Double handling is eliminated and I have more time to design stunning spaces with my clients.

Greg from Chimu Adventures
North Sydney and South America
Spending three months a year in South America is the best part of running our adventure travel company. Xero allows us to manage our business as if we were in Sydney, but from anywhere between the Antarctic Circle and the Amazon jungle. It handles multiple foreign currencies and shows us our accounts in real-time. My iPhone with the Xero app is now my must-have travel accessory.

We’re obsessed with crafting unique gelato, cakes and sorbets and seeing the joy they bring to our customers.

Amelia from The Book Kitchen
Surry Hills, Sydney
Running a business seven days a week doesn’t leave you much time for anything else. But thankfully, now that we’re using Xero for our payroll, purchasing and sales, we’ve been pleasantly surprised by how much smoother it’s making our business run. All the hassles of bookkeeping are gone, and that’s resulted in more free time to focus on building our business, making our food even more delicious, and keeping customers happy. Xero has done wonders for our small business.

Tim from Fonda Mexican
We want to smash the idea that Mexican food has to be stodgy and smothered in cheese. Fonda is all about enjoying fresh, contemporary food in a family kitchen atmosphere. With Xero, we can tell exactly how we’re performing in real-time and make the adjustments we need to succeed. With the click of a button we know if we’re making money or not.

Chris from Kaffeina
Coburg North, Melbourne
Coffee flows in the veins of my family, so creating a family coffee business was a dream come true. As an online accounting solution, Xero made perfect sense for our small and busy team. We can access it wherever we are to see how the business is performing. Producing 15 million cups of coffee a year isn’t enough for coffee lovers like us – we’re planning to grow and are taking Xero with us.
Kate from Blackbird & Fox
From Arts student to croc-wrangler, I found my true calling in running my own specialty homewares and gift store in Melbourne. While it hasn’t come without its challenges, Xero’s made the accounting side of things so much simpler: I do the bank rec over breakfast, payroll is a breeze – and the numbers and reports are on hand whenever I need them. It’s no wonder I’m a Xero-devotee.
