Xero Accounting Software

The Cumberland has partnered with Xero Accounting Software to help you manage your accounts

HOW IT WORKS

Xero’s cloud-based accounting packages allow businesses to manage their finances from anywhere, at any time, and now all the Cumberland’s business banking users can sign up to have their account transactions automatically imported into the software. If you have a Cumberland Business current account you can sign up for the Xero direct bank feed and have your transactions sent automatically to your Xero account, every working day. This will give you an up to date view of your financial position and save you time reconciling your accounts

SETTING UP

Businesses can also provide their accountant or bookkeeper with access to financial information via the online interface, allowing them to work together with their accountants to closely manage financial performance

How long before I start to receive the feed?
Once you’re set up, your transactions will appear in Xero every working day morning (Monday – Saturday) for as long as you want to receive them
What about historical transactions?
Transactions from before you had the feed in place won’t be sent to Xero, you’ll need to input these manually
