Transfer existing transactions into Xero

If your business has existing transactions, (such as invoices and bills), you’ll need to bring those account balances from your old accounting system into Xero. We call these existing transactions "conversion balances." We recommend working with your accountant to help you figure this out. If you’ve recently set up your business and don’t have any existing transactions, skip this step.
