So today I signed up and got my business going with Xero. The process was similar to MYOB LiveAccounts but the biggest difference was that I was able to import my chart of accounts and opening balances from MYOB AccountRight. Bliss. The process seemed real easy, literally a few clicks of the mouse and all 58 accounts were created, complete with balances. (I’m wondering what Xero is going to do with the closing balances of P&L accounts for June 2010 and how the whole new financial year thing is going to work, but I’m sure this will reveal itself soon.)
Xero worked with my browser of preference (Google Chrome) which LiveAccounts didn’t.
So, I’ve got my business up and running and a complete chart of accounts, all before my morning coffee. So good that I’m about to click the cute little smiley icon at the bottom of my Xero dashboard.
