Workpapers are live in the UK

Richard Francis UK Workpapers

Off the back of our announcement at Xerocon UK last week, we’re proud to release Workpapers for our UK Partners.

Workpapers makes core compliance services much more efficient by allowing accountants to:

  • seamlessly connect Xero data with online workpapers

  • import and attach supporting documentation

  • use dashboards and iconography for a clear view of job progress

  • interact online with clients and team members

  • maintain a clear audit trail of communications, queries and changes

  • auto-journal changes to Xero, keeping the single ledger in sync

  • prepare and review workpapers more effectively than traditional, EXCEL-based products.

Check out the video for a overview:

Note that recent releases allow:

  • ‘Favourite’ workpapers to be applied across other jobs or practice-wide

  • Archiving of completed workpaper packs

  • Bulk send of queries to client entity types.

Workpapers is part of our disruptive single ledger strategy of building core accountant features around the same data as client features. With over 250 accounting firms already using Workpapers since open release in April, significant time and cost improvements are already the norm.

Looking to the future, Workpapers will be aligned even more closely with practice management, tax and reporting software into a product suite called Practice Studio. We give it away as part of the Xero Partner Program to our Silver+ Partners.

The UK is an important market for Xero and we’re continuing to invest heavily in providing our accounting and bookkeeping partners with all the tools they need to work more closely with small businesses. By helping streamline compliance work we free our partners up so they can invest their efforts in providing higher value advisory services that really make a difference.

You can find out how easy it is to get up and running with Workpapers by attending one of our webinars or sign up now.

Not sure why you have picked a picture of Richard where he looks like he is going to blow up the joint.

XPAC takes off in South Africa

Last week, I attended another great function at Truth Coffee hosted by Yoco in collaboration with Digicape and Xero. A comment was made that stuck in my head most of the weekend – “Don’t waste your time with software that does not integrate.” I can not imagine what it must be like to work on ...

Why you need to be a change leader, rather than a change manager

Accounting professionals have moved on from the question “why cloud?” to asking how they can use the cloud to move forward in the current accounting landscape. CEO and Executive Director of the Maryland Association of CPAs, Tom Hood, recently told AccountingWEB how accountants should not just “manage” change but “lead” it, while still keeping sight ...
