Xero vs QuickBooks for Small Business | Spitfiregirl | Xero
 
01:37
Heidi Yarger is a great example of life imitating art – literally. First, her grandmother called her a “Spitfire” and the name stuck. And today, she is the Creative Director/Owner of Spitfiregirl, a brand design studio. To say that she’s a right-brain would be putting it mildly. “I’m not that great with math, I specifically avoided math in school,” says Heidi – so it’s no wonder she experienced the accounting fears for her studio. Luckily, Xero helped eliminate this fear. “It’s right in your face. It’s so easy to use. I talk to people all the time about how amazing it is,” she says of her new accounting software. For Heidi, Xero is what you might call a breath of fresh air – particularly for those small businesses considering Xero vs QuickBooks. “QuickBooks was very laborious,” explains Heidi. “There were so many extra steps that needed to be taken to get from Point A to Point B – and nothing talked to each other. And that was really frustrating.” Heidi is no longer frustrated. Thanks to Xero, she is able to save time and manage her accounting functions on the go. Now she can fully enjoy the wonders of being a mother and small business owner: “Those little nuggets of time are really valuable – and every nugget of time is valuable when you’re a mom. So Xero’s been really helpful in getting things done quickly.” Learn more about why small businesses choose Xero cloud accounting software: https://www.xero.com/us/accounting-software/why-xero/ Xero is beautiful accounting software for small businesses and their advisors.

Coffee Supreme Fell in Love with  Xero | Al Keating | Xero
 
04:01
Meet Al Keating, CEO of Coffee Supreme New Zealand. He's one of many Xero customers with a cool story to tell. Video transcript: I’ve always said, “Hospitality is generosity paying attention.” I think coffee is the great leveller. It doesn’t matter whether you’re Donald Trump or a homeless person. You love coffee and you have that in common. As a chief executive, when I need the information, I know I have access to it, but as far as looking at spreadsheets and pages and pages of numbers, I find that like sort of chewing dry flannels, you know? It’s pretty tough going. I’m Al Keating. I’m the chief executive of Coffee Supreme and I live in Auckland, New Zealand. When I was eight, I had my first memory of drinking coffee. On Sunday mornings, dad would make coffee in a saucepan and would let us drink the leftovers. I thought, “Yeah, this is a pretty special drink. I could get into this.” What I love about being a dad I think is probably seeing yourself in your children: the good things and the bad things. But also seeing their own character come about and realizing that you have a part in checking that. That is probably one of the warmest things about being a dad. I think they definitely know there’s something special about coffee. They don’t know it puts food on the table but, you know, they do try and drink the dregs anytime possible, my kids are often asking for a sip. My career in coffee started when I was sixteen and I got a job in a cafe called Captain Delicious and discovered that this had a future. This is not just a transient kind of hospo job; this is something I can have a career in. I love people. I think more than anything, I love working with people. People are the hardest thing and the most rewarding thing to work with, so I love spotting somebody young and saying, “Hey, you know, I should give him a shot,” or, “I should give him a shot,” and seeing somebody become better at what they’re doing while working here inside the organization. When we first set up shop in Auckland, we were just me and the warehouse really. I remember having a conversation with the owner about, “Man, we really need to build somewhere we can sit people down and show them some hospitality and I think this site is the site we should do it.” And he was like, “I don’t know if this is the site, you know. It’s tucked away. Shouldn’t it be on the main drag? It’s on a back street, it’s got a roller door for and entrance.” I said, “This is the one. This is where we should do it.” We caught a good one and yeah, it turned out to be a good one. It’s gone on to be, you know, perhaps one of this city’s startings, quite a pioneering joint. New Zealand is an amazing country, right? Besides Frodo and Lorde. I think it’s pretty rare to find a country where the beach is only a few minutes’ drive away, it’s okay to wear bare feet in the supermarket, you can eat fish and chips on the bottom of your car. I think there’s something beautiful about New Zealand that seems every simple. I know we’re on the arse of the world, but life seems very simple down here and, you know, there’s pretty amazing stuff about this country. I think that the quote, “Wherever you go, there you are,” is – you know, I think they call it mindfulness and I’ve seen people with little green stickers on their computers and things reminding them to be right there in the moment and I think for me it’s probably just about worry. You know, don’t worry about tomorrow, just be here today. You know, be here right now and worrying can’t achieve anything and doesn’t change anything, so I think that quote really is about just being here, being present, being where you are and not staring out a window which is something that I’m kind of known for: daydreaming, staring out the window.

Xero + BuilderTREND | Xero

Xero + BuilderTREND: The time-saving/customer-focused no-brainer For John Struckman, painting houses migrated from a summer job to a small business. Today, as the owner of Integrity Design + Build, he’s committed to helping customers with a single solution for home improvement. As John can tell you, there was a lot to learn when launching the business. This meant an accounting system – first QuickBooks, then BuilderTREND. “Once I ran across Xero, and saw that BuilderTREND and Xero were doing this integration – it just seemed like a no-brainer from that point to cut all the double-data entry out and really give us the ability to grow without having to add additional staff.” Homeowners have many questions and decisions during a renovation. “Having the seamless integration between [Xero and BuilderTREND] gives the client the opportunity to see their financials on their project at any day, from anywhere. From a customer service standpoint – that’s huge.” The Xero + BuilderTREND integration offers many time-saving and customer-focused benefits. Integrity Design + Build can invoice clients faster, pay subcontractors faster and give clients real-time visibility into their project. Xero further links with Fathom to help track the company’s health and key performance indicators. Xero + BuilderTREND: A partnership that makes sense John Kaiser, Director of Sales and Strategy for BuilderTREND, shares in the excitement of Xero. BuilderTREND is a cloud-based project management software and communications tool for the construction industry. “By BuilderTREND and Xero integrating, we have eliminated the double-data entry that a contractor would experience if there were no integration with our platforms. We believe the platform model is the future of mobile solutions. The Xero partnership just made sense from the beginning.” Xero is beautiful accounting software for small businesses and their advisors.

Fixed Assets & Manage Depreciation | Xero Accounting Software
 
02:03
Managing your fixed assets outside of your accounting software can be prone to error and difficult to sync with the rest of your financials. Xero makes it easy to track assets, and work with your advisor to manage depreciation all in the same system, so the books are always up to date. Just enter the bill and categorize it to a fixed asset account. Xero will immediately create an asset which will be waiting in a draft state in the Fixed Assets register for your accountant or bookkeeper to take from there. Attach a copy of the bill as you enter it, so your advisor can quickly find all the information they need. It’s an easy workflow - You enter the bills and your advisor has everything they need to register the assets and run depreciation. Under fixed assets you’ll see all the draft assets Xero created automatically from any bills or other transactions that were coded to a fixed asset account. You can also add an asset from scratch without entering a bill first. The asset can be registered and other information captured like warranty expiry date, and serial number. The depreciation options and related settings provide enough flexibility to meet your accounting requirements. If you’re moving from another accounting system or spreadsheet you can import your assets. Just download the template and follow the instructions provided. Register multiple assets in bulk with a single click, saving time. Depreciation can easily be run at any time. Your reports will give you the full picture of your business’s performance and position throughout the year. The disposing and selling of assets is simple. Xero does the hard work and automatically creates the accounting journals for you. Xero is forgiving when you make mistakes. Many errors can be corrected on the fly without having to re-run depreciation. Xero recalculates it for you. Both businesses and their advisors can quickly access and view core information about assets on their books: the name, classification for accounting purposes, purchase information, and an asset’s book value. Easily review and update Asset Types, Depreciation Methods and default accounts from the list. Finally, seamless accounting and fixed assets for small businesses and their advisors with Xero.

Choosing the right accountant | Small business guide | Xero
 
03:12
Amanda Aguillard from Aguillard Accounting details the benefits of an accountant managing your small business finances. First, take the time to choose the right accountant. Amanda says it’s important to find someone you really get along with. That’s because your accountant will be your most-trusted advisor with a broad range of experience – so you want him or her to be approachable. And be sure to choose an accountant who’s familiar with the small business space. For example, an accountant with a strong tax or estate planning background may not fit with a small startup. Tap into your network It’s a good idea to ask other small business owners – especially if they’re in the same vertical as you – who they use for their accounting needs. If you don’t have a small business network, reach out on social media for referrals. Put your accountant to work Accountants are financial advisors who use data to help make good business decisions. By all means, use your accountant to help minimize your tax liability and maximize your operational efficiency. Take it to the cloud As Amanda and your accountant can tell you, there are many benefits to cloud accounting: “Cloud accounting used to be about data security, about having information stored offsite. But if you turn it from something reactive into something proactive – and consider that information as available to anyone at any time – it becomes incredibly powerful. Advisors from anywhere in the world can get together and help business owners make real-time decisions.” Don’t go without an accountant Despite the benefits, some may choose to run their business without an accountant. That’s when they face time constraints. Think about your situation. How much time can you realistically dedicate to your accounting requirements? All too often, these needs are neglected – which requires a rush to organize receipts and expenses before the tax filing deadline. This is a near-impossible task. “It’s important to find an accountant who will be proactive about saving your business money, because cashflow is the biggest struggle of small businesses. “Some small business owners are worried about moving their financial information over to an accountant. But the amount of time that’s going to be freed up by leveraging that resource will allow that business owner to go out and do what they’re passionate about.” Learn more about choosing the right accountant: https://www.xero.com/us/small-business-guides/accounting/how-to-choose-accountant/ Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/xero.accounting/ Follow us on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/xero/ Follow us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/xero Follow us on LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/company/xero Subscribe to our Youtube Channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/XeroOnlineAccounting
