Or are you considering using Xero to do the accounts for your small business but don’t know where to start?

Our free mini-course Getting Started With Xero will walk you through the first few steps you need to take when starting out with Xero.

First, we show you where to go to sign up to Xero and open your account. We help you through the initial steps of entering your business’ basic information and getting your Xero file open.

Then, we log into Xero and do a quick tour of the interface so you can make a start on finding your way around.
