Xero Accountability

Integration with Xero has arrived! You can now send your sales directly into Xero via a CSV file. Before you start loading all your sales there are a few things you need to know so grab your abacus and hop on the train to fun town because we’re going to blow your mind.

Hmmm, we may have overstated the journey but there is one key little point that we want to make. When Xero add GST to an order they apply GST per line item, which is different to how other applications might do it. In orders with multiple items this can cause small differences in rounding which might result in Xero rounding down when we have rounded up. This is displayed in the order invoice below as you can see in the last two rows.

The bottom two lines show the automatic corrections which are made to allow the GST exclusive and inclusive totals match between Xero and Smallfish.
