Industry leader Xero have recently announced that there are further increases coming to their pricing.

 

We are hearing it across many sectors and all over the media of late, I am sure you are too! Costs of living generally have increased across the board! Paralleling into business, industry leader Xero have recently announced that there are further increases coming to their pricing. You may have recently received an email or other communication from Xero directly about these changes.

As you can see, Xero is still the place to be! At Beam, we recommend Xero for most businesses, and this price increase does not change our view on this. The improvements and enhancements far out way the increase. Some people may think, is it time for a software change? Our answer to this is simple…if Xero is working for you currently then NO don’t change, as the cost of changing software’s can be extensive! Take into consideration, the setup, the rework, the training of staff and the additional work required for end of year financials and payroll if in different software’s.   

From 1 July 2024, the cost of Xero Business plans will increase across Australia. Xero are also making changes to its plan offerings and names and some plans will no longer be available.   

This move will begin with current Premium 10 – 100 subscribers – you will be moved to the equivalent tier Ultimate Plan (with Ultimate Pricing) on 1 July 2024.  

Xero intends to move all subscribers to the new plans by March 2025.
