XERO Providing Simpler Sales Invoices

The biggest concerns facing the world right now are centred around the advancement of AI and Machine Learning and how it will affect our businesses. The key thing to take away from any conversation around Ai is that it is designed to aid our work, not make our work redundant. Technology is designed to augment the tasks that you do every day to make your life easier until you get to a point where you wonder how you ever achieved it without it. Where Xero has perfected this has been in the field of sales invoice processing – not eliminating the job as a whole.

Xero is designed towards a common problem – small businesses struggling to get account codes right. It is ideal because accountants and bookkeepers spend a lot of time recording transactions – and that time is money.

Whilst many business owners went down the route of buying off-the-shelf solutions that were not built to deal with the complexities of accounting, the machine learning technology developed by Xero was able to take those complex areas and deliver a solution directly helping users of it since day one.

How It Works

Small businesses are benefitting from Xero by having instant visibility of their financial position and managing the entire accounting process alongside their bookkeeping services.

This includes bookkeeping basics to accepting online payments, paying bills, submitting your VAT returns online and even automating your accounting. In short, XEro was developed to help you run a healthy business – not take over your business.

As a cloud-based solution, Xero has features and integrations suitable for multiple types of businesses and sectors, making life simpler for small business owners desperately in need of spending more time growing the company. Xero can also be catered to your specific business requirements, providing a connection to your bank, payment services, accountant and over 700 third-party apps.

Benefits That Every Business Owner Needs

Every small business owners want those little things that make working life so much easier. Xero is a solution that certainly caters towards them all.

Late payments are the bane of existence for a small business owner, with 30% of invoices not settled on time in the UK alone each year. 1 in 5 insolvencies is attributed to late payments for small businesses. Xero can help receive payment twice as fast by connecting you to online payment platforms, allowing for a pay now button on your online invoices and emails – even going as far as notifying you when the invoice is opened.

Xero is not about running your company, it is about helping you to run your company. Contact the team at Pebbles Bookkeeping today for Xero training in sales invoice processing and bookkeeping services in Manchester.

Diane has been providing her services to my company for approximately 6 months now and I can honestly say that due to her assistance, my company is running a lot more smoothly than it has at any time over the previous 30 years that it has existed.

I would just like to say that I would recommend her services to any business, whatever the size, as I can only see that her services would be beneficial to any company that may choose to employ her services.

Pebbles Bookkeeping took over our bookkeeping when a full-time member of staff left the business.  Our accounts are relatively complex for a business our size because of the number of different suppliers and products we deal with, but Pebbles were able to get quickly up to speed.  We have significantly reduced our costs spent on bookkeeping activity as a result. They have also helped us move to a new accounting system (Xero), which we are already seeing the benefit of, and we’re looking forward to working with Pebbles in the future to automate more of our back-office processes.

Only The Brave have used Pebbles Bookkeeping for a few years now and we treat them instinctively like an integral department of our business.

I have worked with Sean for over two decades in my previous businesses and when Sean and Diane went on their own it was a no brainer to get them involved with our day to day accounting.

Pebbles manage our bookkeeping, expenses, credit control and PAYE and have a keen eye for detail and help us spot important financial matters before they become issues.

Their integrity and honesty are unquestionable and as a result, Pebbles are an asset to our business and will continue to work with us for many years to come.

Anne-Marie Armstrong, Amberry Marketing

I just wanted to thank you both for the help you’ve given me thus far in setting up my new cloud-based bookkeeping system ‘Clearbooks’.

Having used Microsoft Excel for more years than I care to admit, I had more than a few reservations when considering changing the way I managed my books, yet understood that I had to make the change sooner or later.

After an intense training session with Sean, (where I probably asked 101 questions), my fears quickly dissipated and I can honestly say that although it’s likely to take me a little while to really get to grips with the new interface, I’ve no doubt that this simple system will save me so much time and hassle in future.

And less time spent doing my books, almost certainly means more time with the family and an end to rushing around like a mad woman at quarter-end!

Thanks again and I’m looking forward to working with you again soon.

Lisa Heggie, The Gunnery

A massive thank you to Diane at Pebbles Bookkeeping & HR. You took the huge stress away from where do I start, with employee policies etc. You have created us a great, informative employee handbook, covering all necessary policies and risk assessments in a matter of no time and from the other side of the world too. I will definitely be in touch for any future help our company needs.
