  1. Allow facility to turn off payroll journals so they aren't automatically posted into the accounts.

    Problem: Business which operates in departments and wants COS payroll journals and overhead journals. Unable to split out the NICS/PAYE through payroll, meaning the auto postings have to be reversed every month and new ones created to allow the split of costs into the P&L.

    Ideal solution: Allow Xero payroll to split NICS/TAX/Pension costs into ledgers by departments which will negate the need to reverse the auto journals and create manual ones.

  2. When sending remittances we need to be able to set brand theme to standard as a default. Not have to change it every time from unbranded to standard.

    I can't create a new remittance default that includes our logo.

  3. It would be great and more efficient if we could add correspondence to the tax returns, rather than have to send separately via myIR.

  4. We would like to be able to comment on the tax payment and save the comment, rather than making the comment and having to approve and then unapprove the letter to get it back to waiting for approval. This would also be good for tax notices that we ignore, as we can put a note as to why we are ignoring them.

  5. We need more flexibility in depreciation schedules to add Second Hand Capital Works Assets for rental properties.
    When you buy a second hand rental property, the capital allowances available under Div 43 needs to be calculated on the original cost, however, the total amount remaining to be claimed will be less than this original amount. Fixed Assets in Xero does not currently allow for this. We need to calculate the depreciation on a straight line basis based on the original cost, not what we paid for it and we need to be able to include an opening written down value,…

  6. It would be great if clients can only see admin email (standard practice email) as a sender rather than staff emails as a sender. Example Invoice reply to standard organisation email rather than individual staff emails.

  7. For a business needing to invoice based on a percentage share (eg horse racing syndicate), it would be useful to have an additional column to calculate the percentage of the full amount.
    A fix I have used is to apply a discount of 100- the share percentage but it would be more professional to have a percentage column.

  8. I've been using Xero Workpapers now for 7 years. While I find it efficient and effective, there is certainly room for minor improvements.

    Yet, despite this list of product ideas from users, it appears that Xero hasn't actually made any changes to this product in the entire time that I have used it. Of the 91 product ideas, only 5 have been marked as 'delivered', 3 of which are not specific to Xero Workpapers, 1 was pointing out a feature that has always been there and the last was resulting from the removal of the old xero reporting (not really…

  9. Good morning,

    I am preparing a set of financials in Xero Reports for a client. One thing I find that takes up time is when the financials have limited account items, and I still need to use the Notes to the Financial Statements.

    To save time it would be great if we could delete multiple empty notes at once instead of using the time-consuming process of pressing the three dots and deleting or hiding them individually.

    Many thanks.

    Thanks for the idea, Tim. I know our product team have been in touch with some work they are currently doing that may possibly solve the idea here. While we look into this I'll shift to Under review here, and round back to share any outcomes. 🙂

  10. Allow journal entry fields to have a formula or calculation. it would be much easier when doing manual journal entries.

  11. Accounting for Opening and Closing Stock.
    In the Trust tax return and probably others, at Item 5 in the business section there is a plus icon you can press to open for 'livestock and produce trading'. In there you can record opening and closing stock, purchases and sales. Currently this is only feeding into the primary production section of the return. I would love to see an option to allow the same information for non primary production businesses. So that the stock can be clearly recorded for a retail business, or a share trading business for some examples. I recently…

  12. Prepayments and Overpayments to be included on both CIS monthly returns and CIS Suffered reports.

    Currently I have just learnt that if you post a customer receipt or subcontractor payment to the sales or purchase ledger as overpayments or prepayments, then match these to the sales invoice or subcontractor invoice at a later date they do not pull through to the CIS reports. Instead you need to find the overpayments posted remove and redo and then allocate them.

    I was unaware of this which has meant submission to HMRC have been incorrect on CIS suffered as contractors do not always…

  13. There has always been a date column - add it back - why mess with something that has been used for so many years. Absolutely so desruptive to our professional services.

  15. Find and Recode - Contact Groups: I have a need for recoding transactions to add or correct tracking categories based on contact groups. We need to provide summary and filtered reporting based on tracking categories which we cannot efficiently find without the contact group. Please add contact groups to find and recode.

  16. In blue Xero you should be able to pool assets for book depreciation as well as tax depreciation. Also there needs to be a way to write assets off when immediate depreciation rules change.

  17. Clock back the time without re-entering all information

    Many times throughout the day I stopped the clock time in XPM and I start working on another job, then later I might go back and work on the initial work I was working on. It would be fantastic if we can clock back in the initial job without having to enter all the details such as the client, job and task again... it would also save time. The online App Clockify offers this option, you might check it out for reference.. hoping this idea is taking on board sometime

  18. I would like to suggest Xero to have a highlighter tool, this would be handy when viewing wide spread comparable reports.

    Currently we are exporting to excel to be able to highlight figures/rows.

    There are no certified browser add-ons for this tool, and once the page is refreshed it will be lost at the browser level.

    It would be handy to keep the highlights even after the page/report is refreshed on the browser.

    Thank you !

  19. Enable the ability to generate a report that includes users for each client organisation that includes users who are not staff members so that you can quickly see if the correct and relevant people are accessing the Xero file and know if you need to remove users who shouldn't be there.
