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 your plan, and will ensure that you have a minimum of 60 days' notice before your plan is moved.

Timeframe for moving to new plans

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

Adding employees to Xero Payroll, Expenses or Projects

If you have the payroll, expenses or projects add-on attached to your current plan and need to add additional users, you can do so and remain on the old plan (until Xero moves you); additional usage charges will continue to apply.

More about the new plans

The 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 one. 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 to a new plan, your previous plan will no longer be available. If you move to a plan that doesn’t include the functionality of an add-on that you previously used, you’ll lose access to the data associated with the add-on. 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.
