Xero makes everything better:

Bookkeeping is better

When your accounts are built on Xero, your bookkeeping is done faster and better than ever before.

Reporting is better

Because your numbers have been set up properly, you get the right kind of reports (and you like reading them).

Decisions are better

Using your up to the minute reporting, you can decide whether to go ahead with that new opportunity – and be confident in your decision.

Cash is better

You’re more organised, and automated follow up is in place so you get paid on time. Maybe even in advance (gasp!).

You are better

All of this works together to help you be a better, stronger business owner. With more growth, profit, and power.

Life is better

It may seem overdramatic, but we have had clients tell us Xero has literally changed their life. You may as well try it!

Integrated app

We don’t just use Xero because it’s the latest accounting software.

The Fresh Approach to Bookkeeping



With so many accounting, bookkeeping, and finance apps to choose from, where do you start?

You need a Fresh Approach.

Discover our combination of the four finest cloud accounting and finance platforms, designed to enhance efficiency, improve decision making, and get you closer to your numbers.

We’ve used it here at FF HQ for ages, and now we’ve decided that it’s too good not to share.

1. Data

No more manual tasks. No more data entry. No more paper.

One central place for you to store and process your invoices and receipts - no longer do you need a showbox!

Emma has joined forces with DEXT, speaking live at Accountex 2019 and Xerocon 2019 on their behalf, and will also be hosting a webinar and facebook live event later this year.

Emma and DEXT recently co-hosted a Practice Exchange dinner at the Grand in Brighton.

2. Accounting System

Run your business on the go with this beautiful accounting software.

Log in online anytime, anywhere on your Mac, PC, tablet or phone and see up-to-date financials.

Use the mobile app to reconcile, send invoices, or create expense claims – from anywhere.

Emma has a long-standing relationship with Xero, recently hosting a webinar with them on Cashflow as well as co-publishing numerous blogs.

3. Credit Control

Credit control is essential to keep your cashflow healthy - if your clients are not paying you on time then you will have issues with your bank balance.

Chaser provides the tools to effectively automate chasing customers to pay their invoices without losing the human touch.

Fresh Financials is one of Chaser’s Partner firms and they have co-published many blogs and case-studies together.

Recently Emma was interviewed by Chaser to discuss Credit Control and how they deliver this at Fresh Financials.

4. Cash flow

Tired of manually updating your cash flow forecast? For every hour users spend forecasting in a spreadsheet, they first have to spend an hour getting things up to date.

Float automatically updates the actual figures directly from Xero so that you always have an up-to-date view of your cashflow situation.
