I have now learnt the Xero accounts package and am participating in the official Xero training programme. I am now able to help clients with setting up or using this software as well as Sage. I have now helped my first customer (a farm shop) to get the most out of this software, and am also using it to run my own accounts in parallel with Sage each month. Yep, I love bookkeeping so much I now do it twice for my own business!
Running it myself gives me a great opportunity to use both of these great packages side by side and positions me to give impartial advice on which may be most suitable for your business. Knowing the Sage 50, Sage Cloud Accounting (‘Sage One’) and Xero packages now also enables me to help businesses who are considering moving from one to the other.
