"I used Xero accounting for the past 5 years in my retail business. Being a complete novice to accounting and accounting terminology I found Xero very easy to learn how to use. My accountant, Suzann Schley, could sign off on annual accounts and file VAT returns efficiently based on my regular inputting of data. It provided her with instant details of every aspect of my accounts when she needed them.
Suzann Schley is a wizard at Xero and a brilliant tutor of this system. She is patient and encouraging and has a thorough understanding of Xero on every level. She had me using it within weeks and is always available to assist when I get stuck or have a problem with it.
It is a very simple method of having instant access to accounts."

"I have used the services of Schley Accounting for five years now and have always found them to be professional, approachable and progressive. Suzann recommended the Xero accounts system to me and it has proven to be an extremely useful tool for monitoring how and where I spend money in the business in a very user friendly fashion."
"I believe Xero and Schley accounting have undoubtedly saved my business over the past two years.
The ease of use and the ongoing data entry make my company accounting so much easier.
I can now have my VAT returns and Income Tax returns complete well before the deadlines which removes a huge amount of stress.
Another plus is that my accounting fees and the use of the Xero solution including iPhone app now cost less than my previous accountant alone.
If you're like me and you hate accounting and just want to carry on with your day to day business this is a perfect solution.
Do this for your business and you will never look back."
