Helping Christchurch get back on its feet

As Christchurch begins to rebuild there are a lot of business owners who have lost their financial records and servers. They now need a way to put their accounts in order.

To help we thought we’d give those businesses the opportunity to recreate their accounts for the last financial year, free. Xero will be available to these business owners at no charge until 30 June 2011.

This allows you to backload your bank transactions from last year and quickly code them up using our Fast Cash Coding features and create a set of books in conjunction with your accountant. Watch this short video to see how easy it is to recreate accounts.

Some banks already provide electronic banking data back until 1 April or a business’s balance date, while some provide only three months. We hope that the New Zealand banks that do not provide 12 months of data online will quickly come to the party and create free files from 1 April 2010 for Christchurch users to help with this process.

Free, unlimited access to Xero until 30 June will give businesses plenty of time to complete April 2010 – March 2011 accounts.

You can find out more about recreating accounts for the last financial year free of charge at xero.com/christchurch.
