Xero: Saving Money and Growing Business

Xero accounting software

What is the goal of every business owner? Surely it is to be more efficient with lower overheads and easier management of information. If you are a company that is running Xero accounting software, you no doubt already have these in place.

If you are not running Xero, here is your opportunity to discover the benefits.

Key Advantages in Running Xero

Many business owners find themselves technologically challenged with all of the new advances available to businesses. They are developed to make our lives easier, but learning about them is the hard part.

Xero, for example, was developed as a solution for businesses struggling with keeping up with their business financials. It has also been significant in lowering staff costs because of it being easy to use – after being trained to use it. Xero costs relatively little every month, which when weighed against the many processes it automates within your business such as manual bank reconciliation, you could save between £10k to £15k per annum – as well as obtaining information much more quickly and simpler.

Xero’s key benefit is that it is cloud-based and has no IT issues affecting its use. That is something that many people running Sage often complained about. With add-ons, Xero can ultimately transform your business, at the very least your significant efficiencies will be achieved.

An additional benefit is that your whole business will feel like it is running a lot smoother by using good, reliable systems and software, taking away your stress and giving you the control that every business owner needs.

Migrating Accounts

Migrating a company’s accounts may sound like a painstaking exercise, moving all the accounting data such as full sales ledger and transactions for years past. The amount of time it takes comes down to being either straightforward or more complex.

If this kind of action was mishandled, it would cause errors and problems for the business, but migrating right can be achieved in a very short period up to a few days. A helping hand from your bookkeeping services will be able to make the process much smoother and more professional.


There is more to taking up Xero than reading an instruction manual and getting to it. There is a bit of training for use that everyone will have to undertake.

The good news is that it is a great software tool, designed for non-accounting trained users and is fun to use once you have completed some training with it. Bookkeeping services in Manchester provide training for Xero accounting software in line with your regular bookkeeping.

What our clients say…

I changed book-keepers around a year ago because of a disagreement.  I employed Diane of Pebbles and having been with the same firm for 10 years, I was amazed by how easy working with Diane was.  Not only did the change save me money but also saved me time.  Utilising new technologies (to me) have massively improved the amount of money I can claim back in VAT and has made the whole process speedier and well as easier.  Even when Diane is chasing me for information she does in a friendly professional manner.  I’m thrilled to be working with her and would recommend her to anyone.

“Pebbles Bookkeeping have been doing our bookkeeping for the past 2 years. Our Accountant recommended them to us and they are very professional, approachable and knowledgeble in the work they do. We send them our paperwork electronically and manually and they process it all efficiently in a timely manner.

I would not hesitate to recommend Sean and the team at Pebbles Bookkeeping – they do a fantastic job.”
Mark Gray, Taylor Made Finance Ltd

“We began to relinquish our bookkeeping tasks to Pebbles Bookkeeping in September 2020, following our meeting with Diane Huxley to discuss our requirements. We signed up with Diane immediately. We have all built a quick rapport with Diane and it’s good to know that we have her support and expertise at the other end of the phone.

Pebbles Bookkeeping is a perfect fit for our company and liaises seamlessly with our accountant. It is our pleasure to work alongside them.”
