Scan receipts to claim expenses instantly

Snap a photo with the Xero Expenses or Xero Me app to scan a receipt and auto-fill expense claims with the key details.

A small business owner sits in a cafe using a Xero app on their phone to snap and scan a paper receipt.

Use an app to scan receipts in a snap

Take a photo on your mobile device and scan the receipt details to populate an expense claim. Capture expenses as they happen to help reduce manual data entry and save time.

The capture screen in a Xero receipt scanning app displays the save button.

Submit claims promptly

Your employees can submit an expense claim on the spot when they use the Xero Expenses or Xero Me app to snap and scan a receipt.

Track spending easily

Track receipts as they’re submitted so you can see how much is being spent and on what. You’ll be able to view job costs and manage cash flow with greater confidence.

The explorer screen in the receipt app shows a bar graph of expenses so you get a visual overview of spending.
