At Xero we’re flat out working on some big things we hope to share with you soon. Meanwhile in this release we’ve focused on a bunch of small refinements.
There’s some features for our Australian users – only a couple of weeks after ANZAC commemorations. It certainly wasn’t planned that way – the stars simply aligned to make it happen. Spooky. There’s also lots of little things such as some changes to the Contact import functionality, some usability improvements and we’re continuing to work on improving performance.
Watch this short video for an overview of the release.
If you’re using the Australian version of Xero here’s what’s new:
- BankLink Import – we now support importing accounts exported from BankLink into Xero – we’ll take care of mapping known AO tax codes to Xero tax codes.
- Improved MYOB Chart of Accounts and Bank Statements Import – we’ve made importing data from MYOB better and improved the way in which MYOB tax codes are mapped to Xero tax codes.
- BSB Number – we’ve made it clearer when you set up your Australian bank accounts, where to specify your bank’s BSB number. This is especially important if you’re using Xero to create Batch Payments.
- Batch Payments – Self Balancing Option – some banks require your exported Batch Payment files to include both the payments you’re making and an extra line to represent the total debit from your account. We’ve added this as an option on the Bank Account dialog.
