Phased move to new plans

We’ll begin moving subscribers who haven’t already moved to a new plan in phases, taking into account their current plan and add-ons. We'll be in touch before we make any change to plans you hold the subscription for and will ensure that you have a minimum of 60 days' notice before a plan is moved.

Timeframe for moving to new plans

We intend to move subscribers to new plans by March 2025.

Moving to a new plan after 12 September 2024

If you want to upgrade or downgrade a plan, or add or remove an add-on to a client’s plan after 12 September, you'll need to choose one of the new plans. If you transfer a subscription, the new subscriber will need to choose one of the new plans.

More about the new plans

Xero’s new plans are designed to help meet the needs of small businesses now and into the future. The reduced number of plans will make it simpler to choose the right plan. Instead of needing to subscribe to add-ons to access key features like managing expenses (Xero Expenses), tracking project financials (Xero Projects) and unlocking insights (Analytics Plus), they will be bundled into plans.

Once you move a client to a new plan, the previous plan will no longer be available. If a client is moved to a plan that doesn’t include the functionality of an add-on that was previously in use, access to the data associated with the add-on will be lost. The data will be archived, so if you need access to it, you can upgrade to a plan that includes that functionality. As an example, if you wish to retain or restore access to Xero Projects data, you’ll need to subscribe to the Ultimate plan, where Xero Projects is included. Note that we highly recommend you download add-on data before moving plans.
