Xero is very easy to use--it is connected with our Silicon Valley bank account which is very convenient. I like the fact that every time I receive an invoice email, I can just forward it. I just have to login to reconcile entries once a month.

Xero is good because it has several integration partners that QuickBooks does not have. It integrates with our inventory/shipping system. It also has very good reporting.

I like that Xero has an online version. Also, I feel that it is more user friendly than QuickBooks. You can link bank accounts and cards to it pretty seamlessly.

Xero - Best Billing & Invoicing Tools for Startups

Xero is an accounting software that promotes itself specifically to the smallest businesses, offering the most streamlined service available in a category that is notoriously complicated. Xero works solely in the cloud and boasts capacity for unlimited users, simple mobile apps and no installation. It covers all basic accounting needs like online invoicing, multi-currency support and expense reporting. In a limited number of states, it also includes payroll features like time tracking, direct deposits and an employee portal.

How startups use Xero?

Xero does everything it can to promote ease of use, and therefore sacrifices some of the more complex features offered by larger services, such as inventory management (which Xero only offers via a third-party add-on). Xero is used almost exclusively by Seed-stage startups that have simpler accounting needs and don’t want the learning curve that comes with a more complex tool like QuickBooks.

How much does Xero cost?

Xero has three pricing plans: a starter plan at $9 per month, a standard plan for $30 per month, and a premium plan for $70 per month.
