Connecting to Xero

Connecting to Xero has never been easier. From the Dashboard, click on Account < Apps < Connect to Xero.

Log in to your Xero Account and allow Burdi permission to connect.


Setting Up Your Account

Default Xero Settings

You can set default rules for all invoices being sent to Xero by heading to Account < Settings < Scroll down to Xero Settings

Here the Xero Bill Account Code can be edited to ensure that all invoices are sent with this account code. Click the drop-down box and scroll down to whichever account code you would like to set as your default setting for Xero.

Similarly, you can do the same thing for your Xero Bill Inventory Account Code. You can set it to Cost of Goods Sold or whichever account code is used for your business, materials or supplies.

You can change this setting for individual suppliers and on individual invoices.

You can also watch The Basics video on how to do this.

Changing Supplier Settings

Payment due dates, Account Codes and Tax Rates vary for suppliers. You can manage this for each supplier by editing individual supplier settings.

Watch this video to find out how.
