Xero have today announced that they are introducing new pricing for all Xero subscribers to come into effect from 15th September 2022. The last Xero price increase came into effect in September 2021 having previously frozen their prices during the covid pandemic to show support for businesses and give them the ability to keep a tight control of their finances.
With prices seemingly increasing daily across the board, we know this is probably expected but this Xero price increase ensures the platform can continually develop the product so you get the best experience and use for your business.
We will continue to champion Xero as Xero champion partners, as we believe it gives the best experience for business owners to keep track of their income and expenses, all wrapped up in an easy to use package.
Xero Price Increase – why are the prices changing?
As a cloud accounting company, Xero continue to invest and develop the Xero product, and regularly release new updates and improvements for their customers. In the last year this has included the introduction of new cleaner reports, short term cash flow and business snapshot reports to give business owners better insights into their financial information, and the launch of Analytics Plus.
To continue to make Xero better for its customers, this means that their will be a small increase in prices. Prices will increase as follows:
Starter = £14 per month (currently £12 per month) – includes 20 sales invoices and quotes, 5 bills, Hubdoc and Bank Feeds (addons for payroll, cis, expenses, projects, pay with wise and analytics plus are extra).*
Standard = £28 per month (currently £26 per month) – includes starter benefits with no restrictions on quantity, plus short term cash flow and business snapshot reports (addons for payroll, cis, expenses, projects, pay with wise and analytics plus are extra).*
Premium (Multi Currency) = £36 per month (currently £33 per month) – includes standard benefits with multi currency transactions (addons for payroll, cis, expenses, projects, pay with wise and analytics plus are extra).*
