Xero Plug-Ins: Enhancing Your Cloud Accounting Experience

Xero Plug-Ins: Enhancing Your Cloud Accounting Experience

As a cloud accounting firm, we are constantly on the lookout for tools and technologies that can help our clients streamline their financial processes and improve their bottom line. One such tool that has been gaining popularity in recent years is Xero plug-ins (find a full list here).

Xero is a cloud-based accounting software that offers a wide range of features and functionalities to help businesses manage their finances more efficiently. However, with the help of Xero plug-ins, you can take your accounting experience to the next level.

Xero plug-ins are third-party applications that integrate with Xero to provide additional features and functionalities that are not available in the core software. These plug-ins can help you automate tedious tasks, improve your reporting capabilities, and even enhance your customer relationship management (CRM) processes.

In this article, we will take a closer look at some of the most popular Xero plug-ins and how they can benefit your business.

1. Receipt Bank

Receipt Bank is a popular Xero plug-in that allows you to automate the process of entering receipts and invoices into Xero. With Receipt Bank, you can simply take a photo of your receipt or invoice, and the plug-in will automatically extract the relevant data and import it into Xero.

This can save you a significant amount of time and effort, especially if you have to deal with a large volume of receipts and invoices on a regular basis. With Receipt Bank, you can also easily categorize your expenses and generate detailed reports to help you keep track of your spending.

2. Hubdoc

Hubdoc is another popular Xero plug-in that automates the process of entering bills and receipts into Xero. With Hubdoc, you can simply take a photo of your bill or receipt, and the plug-in will extract the relevant data and import it into Xero.

Hubdoc also integrates with a wide range of other cloud-based applications, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box, allowing you to easily store and organize your financial documents.

3. Float

Float is a cash flow forecasting and management tool that integrates with Xero to provide you with real-time visibility into your cash flow. With Float, you can easily create and update cash flow forecasts, set targets and alerts, and monitor your actuals against your forecast.

This can help you make more informed financial decisions and ensure that you have enough cash on hand to meet your business needs.

4. Spotlight Reporting

Spotlight Reporting is a powerful reporting and forecasting tool that integrates with Xero to provide you with detailed insights into your business performance. With Spotlight Reporting, you can easily create customized reports and dashboards, track your key performance indicators (KPIs), and even forecast your future performance.

This can help you identify trends and opportunities in your business, and make data-driven decisions to improve your bottom line.


Xero plug-ins can help you automate tedious tasks, improve your reporting capabilities, and even enhance your CRM processes. By incorporating these plug-ins into your Xero software, you can take your accounting experience to the next level and gain valuable insights into your business performance.

We have been using Melissa, Marche and the rest of the crew at ThriveCFO for over 10 years, in order to compile our annual audit for Law Society. They have been exceptional, efficient and pro-active every year. I would not take the business anywhere else.
