  1. It's been mentioned previously but seems to have fallen off Xero's radar - the ability to use our own Excel workpapers within Xero workpapers would be fantastic.

  2. Make Secondary review points editable and able to be deleted as can the Primary review points. It's an obvious and frustrating omission for Users of Xero Workpapers.

  4. On the Income Tax workpaper, the first section Tax Provision per P&L has a Less PAYG installments (sic) section.
    Xero prefills the dates (e.g. for 2020 FY workpapers):
    September 2019
    December 2019
    March 2020
    June 2020

    All good so far, you can enter the PAYG Instalments that will be included on the tax return.
    The final line FY20 Tax to pay/(refund) then agrees to the company tax return.

    The second section Balance Sheet Income Tax Reconciliation has a Less PAYG installments (sic) section.
    Xero prefills the dates (e.g. for 2020 FY workpapers):
    June 2019

    This is good, June 2019 instalment…

  5. It would be useful if there was a section that allocated for notes screenshots to be incorporated into the notes on workpapers for each profit and loss and balance sheet item. This will allow for a screenshot from an email for example to be copied and pasted onto the notes section.
    (as opposed to saving this and then dragging it as a document). These notes should also somehow be linked (similar to documents) to each line item of the profit and loss so that if you ":click" on a notes icon the note pops up and you can make the…

  6. Two ideas:

    1) Need Bookkeeper and Senior assigned

    At the moment, there are only 3 levels "Assigned" "Manager" & "Partner"

    On bigger jobs you may have 4 or 5 people involved, which is not possible. Please can you add some more levels eg Bookkeeper, "Senior" or whatever you want, (a custom field would be even better!). Maybe remove the word "Assigned" as it is too vague. (eg what is your job? Answer: I generally get assigned)

    2) Senior to to Approve

    Following on from (1) it would be good to have an option at least for the "Senior" to approve…

  7. Integrate XWPS with XPM - The XPM job should allow us to enter the period start and end date and this should link to XWPS along with the Partner, manager and staff. We should then be able to go into XWPS directly from that job in XPM. This would reduce having to enter data (period and staff) twice on XPM and XWPS

  8. For non-Xero clients, it would be very useful to be able to use workpapers and include the actual account balance from the Client's accounts, rather than displaying the Xero account balance as nil. As a practice, we use Xero workpapers, but not every single client uses Xero.

  9. Currently, if I am looking at a Workpaper and I click on the Flag next to an account, I can add a Review Point for that account.

    That review point shows up in the list at the bottom of the workpaper.

    If I click the flag next to the account, I can see the review points that have been added to that account... but I can't see the replies to those review points and nobody can reply to them from that area.

    I have to scroll down to the bottom to reply to the review point.

    When I get to…

  10. Please could we update the Corporation tax Working paper in the UK in Working papers for Marginal tax relief.

    It's fairly useless without it as the final figure does not agree at all to the value of the CT. Unless it's fudged and then you can't see the computation.

  12. Integrate a bank statement generator into bank feeds so accountants and bookkeepers can send a request directly to the clients bank for a bank statement for quarterly bank reconciliation. Pre-approved by client when bank feed integration is setup. Alternatively, automated bank statements per quarter generated and uploaded to Xero via bank automation.

  13. Can there be a date period added to calculate the averages on this report?
    We do not find "The average in the account is calculated based on all transaction lines in the account for the life of the organisation" to be of use unfortunately.

  14. I would like to see on the front sheet of the VAT report a Summary break-down by VAT code showing Total, Net and VAT by each VAT category.
    Is this something you are currently working on and if so when would it be available to us.

  15. Workpapers - Preview Attachment Highlighting faded
    When previewing a workpaper rather than downloading if you have highlighted using pdf manager this doesnt show that bright. Need to fix as this is hard for a review to know what the team member has highlight.

  17. The 'Next' button in workpapers, should be added at the end of the page (eg, A5 - Analytical Review) as this flows better for reviewers and saves time having to scroll to top of page when client has MANY accounts

  19. Sometimes we have more than three people working on a job and currently Xero only allows for one preparer, manager and partner on a job. It would be good if we could have more flexibility in this area.
