What does ‘end of financial year’ mean?

The financial year runs from 1 April to 31 March. If you run a business, each year you’ll need to submit an income tax return to the Inland Revenue to figure out how much income tax you owe.

Getting EOFY ready simply means getting your books in order so your business’s financial performance can be accurately reflected in your income tax return.

Xero makes tax time...

Less spreadsheet-y

Spreadsheets aren’t designed for accounting. There’s no audit trail, it doesn’t integrate with other business applications, and it’s hard to track transactions. Using Xero can help ensure your data is accurate and all your information is up-to-date, so when it comes to the end of the next financial year, you’re not sifting through endless, out-of-date spreadsheets.

Less spreadsheety

Less receipt-y

The last thing you want at the end of a busy year is a pile of faded, dog-eared receipts. With Xero Expenses you can keep track of all your receipts digitally. Just take a photo of the receipt and all the details are automatically scanned into Xero.
