RightSignature and Xero

Being able to email invoices and quotes directly out of Xero to a contact is great, but what if you need formal acceptance before you proceed? Electronic signatures are legally binding in New Zealand, Australia, the U.S., U.K., and most other jurisdictions, and collecting a signature on a document (electronic or not) shows you mean business.

RightSignature has taken document signing to the cloud. You can easily send a document for signing and complete the whole process without the usual hassles. You choose which format – PDF or Word doc (other formats too).

“Electronic signatures are legally binding in Australia, the U.S., U.K., and most other jurisdictions…” are they legally binding in New Zealand?

@StuartM – I’m certainly not a lawyer, but it does appear that the Electronic Transactions Act 2002 makes electronic signatures legally binding in New Zealand. Not a whole lot of useful info on this topic available online, but the paper linked to in this article is useful: http://www.bellgully.co.nz/resources/resource.00516.asp
