Featured Software: Movemybooks

There are often things you want to change in life, but the process that you have to go through is normally enough to put people off making that change. The same goes for accounting software. So often we see clients express an interest in Xero, but they wince at the thought of moving all their data across from their existing system, such as Sage or Quickbooks, and even Quickbooks Online.

Movemybooks have shook up the industry, and they have taken that pain away, by providing a slick service whereby you upload your current data, and they convert it into Xero for you. It really is as simple as that.

Typically, the data conversion takes 30-60 minutes, but it can take a little longer depending on the size of the data. Either way, it is a process you can leave running on your web browser while you crack on with other work.

Sounds to good to be true? It really isn't. In fact, it gets even better for Xero enthusiasts. The charge for moving up to 24 months worth of data would historically of cost £180+VAT. However, Xero have identified that it is in their interest to encourage clients to migrate across to their system, so they are currently covering the costs for the conversion.

The only cost to you may incur, is if you wish for more than 24 months worth of data to be converted. If you do, there will be a cost of £60+VAT for each additional 12 months you wish to convert. From experience of doing this process manually via cv imports/exports, we believe this is still fantastic value for the service that you receive.

There is a small amount of house keeping to be done before you start using the Xero system post conversion, such as ensuring all bank items are reconciled, and the VAT returns are reconciled. Both of these can be done in bulk, and should not take longer than 5-10 minutes in total.

So if you are looking forward someone to help move you to Xero, then get in touch with one of our team that will happily help you through the process from start to finish. Contact us on (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
