Spring has sprung.
Not that seasons seem to matter too much anymore, I for one think I got a bit of colour out running on Sunday, which my pasty-white’s didn’t mind. Nevertheless, spring is a good time to turn the leaf and have a refreshed crack at getting ahead. So anyway, how’s business?
It can be a tougher time of year for businesses, with IRD sticking their hand out for a piece of your bank account and ACC typically doing the same. With dicey weather, if you’re in the face-to-face consumer goods and services game, that can be a badly timed double hit. If you’re worried about your bank balance, talk to us about a cash forecast so you know you’ll make it to peak season safely.
Surprisingly, we’re not going to drop a “please reconcile your Xero” in here, because you know the drill and most of you have it down pat. Keep it up ;). If you’re ever having any difficulties reconciling, give us a bell and we’ll sort ya out.

Xero Inventory – wait don’t tune out just because you don’t sell ‘things’. Whether you’re selling yams or yarns, it’s likely the invoices you raise will contain an element of repeated text.
Now, that could be “High quality medium sized yellow yams…”, or “One hour consultation with you on the…”. Either way, if that text could come up at one click, it’d be better than spending time typing it over and over; time I bet you didn’t factor in to the invoice you’re busy raising…
