Simplify Tax Season with 4 Time-Saving Xero Tips for Enhanced Business Efficiency

As Seen On

As tax season approaches, simplifying your accounting tasks and collaborating more effectively with your accountants and bookkeepers is of the utmost importance. Leveraging the power of Xero for managing end-of-the-financial-year (EOFY) obligations can make a significant difference in ensuring a smooth process. With that in mind, here are four Xero tips to help you streamline your EOFY tasks and boost your business efficiency this tax season.

  1. Finalize Bank Reconciliations Faster with Automatic Refresh

Regular bank reconciliation is crucial for tax management, as it helps you maintain accuracy in your financial records. Xero’s automatic refresh feature streamlines the reconciliation process by populating similar transactions without manual data entry or screen-refreshing. By utilizing this functionality, you’ll save time and minimize errors, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your business.

  1. Store Tax-Time Records in One Central File Library

The Xero file library is an excellent resource for storing essential documents such as receipts, bank statements, rental summaries, and emails for EOFY. This feature boasts existing folder structures like Inbox and Contracts, but you can further enhance your organization by creating custom folders specifically for tax season (e.g., EOFY 2023). Storing your documents centrally and sharing them with your advisors ensures easy accessibility, promoting efficiency and effective collaboration during tax time.

  1. Keep Track of Contacts Using the Free Text Field

Staying organized with your customers, suppliers, vendors, and advisors during tax season is vital for smooth operations. Xero’s free text field under contacts allows you to document vital information such as action items, follow-ups, and other relevant details. Digital notes provide improved task management and collaboration, ensuring that you stay on top of tax season responsibilities.

  1. Use the Global Search Function to Find Missing Information

Xero’s Global Search feature is a powerful tool for locating transactions, contacts, and other EOFY-related items. Instead of scouring through piles of paperwork or navigating endless digital file folders, using the Global Search functionality can save you time and help you complete your EOFY tasks more efficiently. With quick access to necessary information, you’ll be able to focus on the bigger picture and make well-informed financial decisions.

By applying these four Xero tips, you can experience a more manageable and efficient tax season. By optimizing your use of Xero’s features, you can save time, stay organized, and collaborate effectively with your advisors. We encourage you to share your thoughts, feedback, and suggestions for other helpful Xero features in the comments section below. Help one another in achieving a smoother tax season and further enhancing business efficiency not only during tax time but throughout the entire financial year.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
