Xero Rapidly Becoming THE Small Business Platform

19th November 2018

At Xerocon 2018, held Wednesday and Thursday last week, we heard how the number of Xero Subscribers has now reached over 1.6 Million Worldwide.

 

Xero’s focus on becoming THE Small Business Platform is greater than ever, with recent market research confirming how users of Xero really do save time, in some cases as much as 6 hours a week!

 

The Xero product itself continues to evolve at a pace, including:

VAT for Making Tax Digital is Ready;
CIS HMRC Submissions direct from Xero is Ready;

A New User Navigation Interface is Ready;
A Lloyds Bank Direct Feed is Coming Soon.

 Revolutionising Small Business Financing

 

A focus on Small Business Financing is a new and exciting area for Xero with connected Apps such as Iwaca and MarketInvoice which fully integrate with Xero and are a source of Invoice Finance.

 

Barclays Increase Unsecured Lending Limit
While announcing a new Partnership with MarketInvoice, Barclays Bank confirmed they have increased their Unsecured Lending Limit to £100,000, up from £50,000.
