Roadshow In Review #4
Guests to the Xero roadshow 2017 did more than meet their account managers and listen to the news and updates from Xero – they were active participants in the big conversations; sharing their thoughts, feedback, stories and ideas as we step into the year ahead.
Our debut magazine for accountants and bookkeepers, Partner Pages, gave voice to some of these personal partner experiences as soon as the morning began – putting peer-to-peer advice into the hands of everyone who walked through the door.
Then guests were were invited to tell us what they took out of the event and to let us know their key challenges for the months ahead.
With Australia having some of the most complex fixed asset rules and requirements in the world, it’s perhaps not so surprising that learning about enhancements like the introduction of tax depreciation including pooling to Xero’s simple-to-use fixed asset solution proved one of the most popular product updates.
Xero now has a fully fledged, integrated fixed asset solution built right into Xero to help advisors calculate tax depreciation. The new enhancements let you manage tax depreciation, as well as pooling for assets. It means you no longer need to use separate fixed asset software to calculate tax values and manage pools.
The introduction of BPAY for invoices also ranked as a firm favourite among bookkeepers and accountants, bringing more choice and efficiency to the way we exchange goods and help run businesses. Efficiency was a recurring focus – firms across the country told us about the time-saving opportunities that Xero Tax is helping them to unlock.
When it comes to the year ahead, bookkeepers and accountants are united in their challenges ahead – citing the ability to boost and manage client cash flow as a primary focus.
The importance of supporting small business cash flow was on Xero’s lips, too. Trent Innes, MD of Xero Australia, spoke about why we believe in helping Australia’s 2.1 million small businesses to get paid faster, free up capital, and help boost the economy for us all.
