Xero updates

Hubdoc is a document collection and management software that reads and extracts key information from your  receipts, invoices and emailed invoices and statements and converts it to files that links to your transactions in Xero.  Get in touch to find out more or visit Hubdoc .


Uber for Business now integrates with Xero where Uber statement data is extracted by Xero and a draft bill created. You need an Uber for Business account and the Uber for Business from the Xero App Marketplace. For more info and how to get started visist the Xero blog

Xero & MYOB updates

Xero now integrates with BP fuel card. If you have a BP fuel card you can set up the connection from the BP Customer Portal and when you get your statement from BP it will automatically create a draft bill in Xero. Pretty handy if you are allocating fuel costs and it will automatically match to the  bank feed.

Have you heard about Hubdoc? It’s a Xero connected app that:

  • Captures data – upload bills and receipts from any device
  • Automates data entry – key data is extracted from the uploaded document and synced to Xero as accurately coded transactions with the source doc attached
  • One-click reconciliation – the transaction is matched to the bank feed for a one click reconciliation
  • Your source documents can be easily to access from anywhere

MYOB has a new integration with Bunnings, if you have an account with Bunnings you can now get your invoices from Bunnings directly to MYOB, no more entering every bill!
