Release no.55

Today we’ve clocked up our 55th release of Xero!

There’s some amazingly dedicated and talented people behind the scenes who make this all possible – analysts, developers, designers, document writers, database dudes…  In fact, an army of people working to help you worry less about accounting and more about what makes you get up in the morning – running your own business. So here’s to another 55 releases!

For our NZ customers this release marks our first step to help you prepare for the upcoming GST rate change. Today we simply included the new 15% tax rates but we’ve written up an overview of what to expect over the next few weeks in Help Center.

If you’re in the UK you’ll love the ability to make manual adjustments to VAT. This has been on our to-do list for a while so we’re especially pleased to be able to get this out into the wild. In fact, we’re so pleased we made a video about it.

No matter what region you’re in there’s also a few other things to enjoy:

You can see a full list of all the changes in our release notes.
