Step 2. Get certified for free

Step 3. Choose your first Xero clients

Though any small business will benefit from Xero, it’s important to carefully select your first clients. Here are a few pointers to help you get it right as a new partner.

Want to migrate a large number of clients? No problem. Contact our partner team at partnerteam@xero.com – we’ll be happy to advise and assist.

Work with internal clients first to enjoy efficiency gains without needing clients to change their processes.

Consider clients who do their own bookkeeping – they’ll be primed to take advantage of Xero’s streamlined way of working.

Moving clients from Sage or Quickbooks? Our conversion partner Movemybooks will migrate your clients and their historical data.

Step 4. Select plans to fit your clients

Xero is a single online product that’s automatically updated with the latest features as soon as they launch. Choose between a range of price plans, tailored to fit different client needs and budgets. For more information and current promotions check out our pricing page.
