How To Invite An Advisor To Xero

Xero is probably the most advanced bookkeeping software for construction businesses with its ease of use UI and massive marketplace that you could connect construction-specific apps like NextMinute straight into your Xero!

Why Do Accountants Ask For Access To Your Xero?

At Saint, we use software that we plug straight into your Xero to allow us to gather important information such as turnover, transactions volume, number of bank accounts, VAT scheme and even a bookkeeping health score!

With this information, we can build a proposal based on your financial information so it is bespoke to your business needs and requirements.

Is Giving Access To My Accountant Safe?

Yes, to give access to your accountant, you will have to invite them. You can ask them to clarify if they only have access to the email and it is not accessed by other team members. 

An accountant should only be gaining access to build a proposal, once this has been produced you can remove their access if you are worried.
