Pros

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.
I love the app and gives me accounting on the go. Helps me track invoices and profits with ease.
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.
