Update to blog, 24 July 2018 – Classic expense claims is staying
On 10 July 2018, we advised that the classic expense claims function would be retired on 31 January 2019.
We’ve listened closely and taken on your feedback, and we’re pleased to announce that we’re now going to keep classic expense claims running as well as roll out the new Xero Expenses function.
If you were using classic expense claims in the six months prior 10 July 2018, you can continue using it for the foreseeable future. You’ll also be able to try out Xero Expenses for free until 28 September 2018.
We’ve made some small edits to the blog below to reflect this change.
The Xero community has spoken, and we’d like to thank everyone for telling us what you think. We’re sorry to have misread the impact that retiring expense claims would have on some customers.
Expense claims are an administrative burden for all businesses. What should be a simple task of reimbursing employees can quickly slide into a paper-filled back-office nightmare.
As one of our oldest features in Xero, the classic expense claims function was overdue some love and we’ve been working closely with our accounting partners and small business customers to reimagine it from the ground up. Today we’re very excited to announce the global launch of the all new Xero Expenses.
A better way to manage expense claims in Xero
The new Xero Expenses offers small businesses a more efficient way to manage expense claims with:
Faster expense capture to reduce data entry through automatic scanning of receipts, and eliminates the need to store paper versions.
iOS and Android apps push notifications to let businesses, employees and advisors capture, submit and keep up to date on the status of expense claims from anywhere.
More flexible user permissions to give complete control of who can view, submit, and approve or pay an expense claim for or on behalf of someone else.
Simple and intuitive workflows to make it easy to see where an expense is at, review and approve all unpaid expenses, and create batch payments to get employees paid promptly.
Greater insights and powerful analytics to empower businesses and their advisors with a detailed and real-time understanding of spending habits and patterns.
And with multi-currency, relevant notifications and seamless Xero accounting integration, the new Xero Expenses is smarter, easier to use, and designed to benefit both the small business and their employees.
