As many of our users – small business, bookkeeping and accounting professionals – experience, we’ve built Xero so it’s dead easy for a small business to understand their cashflow, but we’ve also built a full double-entry accounting system and client management system for accounting professionals. We truly believe that small business are more successful when paired with accounting professionals, and our software design reflects this.
As many small businesses know, the accounting professional you work with is in the best position to be the trusted advisor for your business. It’s not your bank manager, nor your lawyer, it’s your accountant. They are there to help. They are there to get you more money back on your tax return, help when you need to get a loan, turn around a cash projection, and some will even collect debts.
I always encourage small businesses to work with accounting professionals and get some good advice. It’s tax time here in the US and with the March 15 deadline looming, I was asked to do an interview on Fox Business Online. You’ll see more of the same message about linking small businesses with accounting professionals across the globe in here (1 minute in for 7 minutes).
