Pros

I love the app and gives me accounting on the go. Helps me track invoices and profits with ease.
The ease of use and reputation are by far the greatest part of this product. In addition to this, the range of potential integrations is fantastic.
Really easy to submit expenses, categorise them and check the progress of you submitted expense - super easy to do all from the app.

Cons

There are no delivery notes/packing slips. They tout a "workaround" but be warned, it's exactly 10 extra clicks so it's really not an option if you need this feature.
Our main complaint is that Xero stopped doing payroll in 2018, so now you have to pay an additional fee to a payroll processor such as Gusto.
Changing accounting software from Xero is a horrible experience. They make it very difficult to pivot to other software.

Xero Accounting

Reviewed 3 years ago

I don't like Xero at all. There marketing campaigns that say it's the best platform.....Please don't fool yourself Xero Accounting Developers. It is an ugly system with primitive layouts.

Pros

There is absolutely nothing I like about Xero. It looks very old like the layouts were done in the early '90s. It is easy to use but nothing spectacular about this software.

Cons

Lacks basic features like to print a delivery note. Maybe these Americans who have written the code knows nothing about accounting. Please take some lessons from Palladium Accounting, Sage Accounting or OneUp.

Full Suite Accounting Software

Reviewed 2 years ago

It works and is now widely used across the world, which makes being able to use it a good skill.

Pros

This enables any small business to manage the income and expenses and full financial statements with relative ease.

Cons

As with any accounting software it is highly dependent on the accounting inputs, which need to be accurate.
