We have announced an increase to two of our monthly subscription plans. The standard plan is increasing by £2.00 and premium plan by £2.50 from 1 August 2019 – for new and existing UK customers.
Since the last change to UK plan prices in 2016, we’ve constantly invested in research, development and innovation – but the time has come to revisit some of our pricing.
Xero UK pricing plans
We understand that price increases aren’t often well received, but we hope you’d agree we’re delivering real value to UK businesses.The price of the starter plan remains the same, as do the prices of Xero Ledger, Cashbook and VAT Cashbook that are only available through Xero partners. If Xero has provided a current discount or promo code, it will continue to be applied to the new pricing from 1 August 2019 until the expiry date. For more details on how the new pricing will apply to current discounts see our FAQs.
Delivering greater value year after year
It’s no secret – we’re out to change the game for small businesses. To do that, we’re continually making improvements – enhancing existing tools, delivering new ones, and making updates in line with changing rules and regulations. It’s non-stop! But we love the challenge; and we love hearing that our award-winning software vastly simplifies and streamlines those day-to-day bookkeeping and accounting tasks.
We’ve helped make life easier for businesses that include online payment options when they invoice using Xero. In the UK, they’re getting paid up to 50% faster – or about 20 days sooner – on average. At the same time, we’re making it easier for business owners to manage money on the move with mobile improvements. Recently, we’ve also added bank feeds for leading UK fintechs, including Revolut, Tide, Transferwise and Starling Bank.
Investing in practice tools for accountants and bookkeepers
Accountants and bookkeepers play an essential part in the small business support network. We believe the additional tools and services we’ve built make the way they serve businesses better.
It’s easier to make the move to digital accounting with our client migration tools; and a host of new learning and support resources at Xero Central make sure everyone can get the most out of Xero. You’ll find training courses and discussions – plus, it’s now much easier to submit queries, track their status and view your case. On top of that, there’s been a continuous flow of releases that you can check out in our product release timeline.
Our Making Tax Digital functionality and recent investment in Xero Tax – currently in beta – reinforces our commitment to compliance. We’re changing the way you file returns directly to HMRC and prepare annual accounts with Companies House – not just for VAT. The full suite of compliance tools within the Xero platform will cover personal tax, corporation tax and statutory accounts too.
More product enhancements to come
With Xero, there’s always more and better to come. We’re boosting our investment in code-free accounting – using machine learning to find patterns, then automatically and accurately code transactions.
Keep an eye out for announcements of more exciting additions to Xero in the coming months.
