Get rewarded for the work you do

Become a partner

Xero partner benefits are designed to give you what you need to be successful, however you define it. The more points you earn, the higher your status level and the more benefits you’ll pick up.

Earn points* with every client

Each advisor invitation you accept, and each client you subscribe to Xero Business, Xero Cashbook, Xero Ledger or Xero Payroll, earns points that determine your partner status and rewards.
