What it means to be a Xero Gold Partner…

What it means to be a Xero Gold Partner…

…and how our Xero Gold partner status can benefit you.

We’re confident Xero needs no introduction, but just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, Xero is the fastest growing cloud based accounting software in Australia… connecting people with the right numbers anytime, on any device, anywhere in the world.

And it’s no secret that although we are accountants and financial planners, deep down we’re technology junkies here at ATB.  We were one of the first professional firms to go paperless over ten years ago, and since then we have been constantly searching for new ways to improve our client’s business.

We found it with Xero. Like most cloud based accounting packages, Xero allows you access to real time figures. Real time figures are your secret weapon, your business partner, and your best friend. Real time figures can mean the difference between staying above the line or sinking below, fast.

So we know cloud based accounting software gives you the very best chance of success. So what does it mean to be a Xero Gold Partner and how can it benefit you?

How is Gold Partner Status awarded?

Xero partner firms like ATB are classified under the partner program according to a points system. The status levels are starter, bronze, silver, gold and platinum – and they reflect the number of customer files that a partner has access to through Xero.

Points are designed to reflect the complex nature of a file and are weighted accordingly, i.e. 3 points for a Business Edition with payroll and 0.1 for a ledger.  The Partner system is designed to recognise advisors who scale within our network, and it’s there to help small and medium businesses to better identify and connect with the advisor that suits their needs.

Xero Gold Status is an achievement that reflects the our level of experience with our customers using Xero. It’s an achievement we are intensely proud of.

News flash…Xero Gold Partner Status benefits you more than it benefits us!

As Gold Partners with Xero, we’re able to use our status to help more small and medium businesses, in a more in-depth way, as our Xero expertise deepens.

It means that we can get your business setup on Xero easily and efficiently,  provide you with training and ongoing support with a programme designed to both simplify and add value to your business.
