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.

Pros

Generally very good, I particularly like the tracking and reporting ability. Being able to compare my sales figures annually with previous years.
It was quite easy to use and the reports are great. So easy to see who you have paid and who has paid you.
Affordable, easy to learn, user-friendly surface, love BAS function in Tax.

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.

Cons

For a small business with a few employees, this was just outrageous. After reviewing Reckon one, I found it would do all MYOB was doing for me at 11.00 a month.
Bill payment section I find this can be a problem where the payment goes.
Setting up from scratch is difficult if not an expert at accounting.

Abomination

Reviewed a year ago

An overpriced abomination.

Pros

Nothing. After moving from Reckon Accounts desktop to sync with our Project Management software, I am regretting the move. We are looking elsewhere

Cons

Lack of customisable reports. Lack of aging in statements. Lack of support for state payroll tax. The way that Xero counts credit cards as an asset and not a liability. The way that "bank reconciliations" are done. The deafening silence from Xero staff in Xero Central.

Accounting for small business

Reviewed 7 years ago

Xero is an all-in-one accounting software ideal for smaller business that needs reports on the fly and can't rely on a CPA on a monthly basis. At the most basic level, Xero allows users to create and send out invoices and reconcile bank feeds, ultimately creating P&L statements, balance sheet, and cash flow statements. It's relatively easy to learn although there is a steep learning curve.

Pros

All in one

Cons

The reports do not flow as easily as quickbooks

The software is relatively ok but is let down by the fact that there is no delivery note / packing slip included. This has become a real bug bear for our organisation & Xero are not interested. There are better options & we will be switching....

Wonderful program for any type of buisness

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

This program is amazing. Invoicing, Payroll, sales, purchasing, inventory, banking, and so much more. This program does everything. I mainly use this program for purchase orders with our suppliers. This program is easily customization so you can put your own letterhead on it. You can have a variety of users on the program as well.

Cons

This program is extremely easy to use, we went through numerous programs to find this one. There is not one thing we don't like about this software. I would recommend it to everyone.

Absolutely love Xero

Reviewed 4 years ago

Xero has allowed us to get a real, detailed view on the financial situation within our company from one place. With a comprehensive setup, it can provide real value from day one.

Pros

Xero has transformed our financial management and provides us with all the real time data we could imagine, and where it lacks, integrations take over. While more "accountancy" friendly than some of the more simple products, once you work with your accountants to get this right, you won't regret it. The detail, features and holistic approach to managing company finances means that we are using this every day and with pleasure.

Cons

The interface is being updated, and it is needed as it is a little old fashioned in its design. That said, it is clean and clear and otherwise we love everything about Xero.

Xero has helped us transform and streamline our processes

Reviewed 2 years ago

Xero has streamlined our operations, and simplified our record keeping, and notification of when bills are due for payment or invoices due for collection. The dashboard is fantastic for an overall picture. The reporting tools are excellent, and the ease of use is so logical and straightforward, that it's simple l to self-teach even for a beginner. On top of that when you have any questions the how-to guides are thorough in themselves, and support is excellent and very quick to come back to you with an in depth answer.

Pros

The ease of use is fantastic, and a beginner is able to self-teach quite easily with the fantastic guides and webinars that are available from Xero. The support is also exceptional and I have always had my queries answered in great detail and very quickly.

Cons

My main issue was that I would like to be able to create different delivery addresses on invoices that have one invoice address but different delivery locations, as it's important to specify. To workaround we write it in the body of the invoice, however with previous systems we have been able to enter multiple delivery addresses, for one invoice address and select the required one each time.

Xero

Easy to use, cheaper alternative to QuickBooks Online

Reviewed 6 years ago

Easy-to-use all in one accounting software for managing my businesses. My accountant loves it!

Pros

Great intuitive User Interface! I was able to create my Xero account , connect by business bank account, and invite my accountant in less than an hour. Great alternative for startups or small businesses that don't want to pay almost double per month for Quickbooks.

Cons

I wish this software had templates for different industries that would allow me to use a standard Chart of Accounts. Without a background in accounting, it can be difficult to correctly categorize certain expenses.

Reckon One

Best choice of accounting software

Reviewed a year ago

It is the most cost-effective accounting software! Perfect for small business owner. Easy to read and show, immediate customer service team, cheaper than Xero, user-friendlier than MYOB.

Pros

Affordable, easy to learn, user-friendly surface, love BAS function in Tax.

Cons

1. I hope I could group process some functions, for example accepting bank transactions in banking.2. It’s not user friendly in mobile devices, but if this will rise the cost, then I can live without it.

Great product and service

Reviewed 7 years ago

I have used many programs over the years like MYOB, Xero, Sassu, cashflow manager and quickbooks etc but I find Reckon One easy to use, monthly fee is very affordable, flexible to what your business requires, their training is very infromative, great trainers and not over the top in price and their service is extremely good. They are constantly upgrading and introducing more add on programs, I wouldn't recommend any other program for my clients only Reckon One.

Pros

User friendly and affordable

Cons

nothing at this stage
