About Xero

We help small businesses thrive worldwide




Global team



We started Xero to change the game for small business. Our beautiful cloud-based accounting software connects people with the right numbers anytime, anywhere, on any device. For accountants and bookkeepers, Xero helps build a trusted relationship with small business clients through online collaboration. We’re proud to be helping over 1 million subscribers worldwide transform the way they do business. And we’re just getting started.

Founded in 2006 in New Zealand, Xero is one of the fastest growing software as a service companies globally. We lead the New Zealand, Australian, and United Kingdom cloud accounting markets, employing a 

world-class team of more than 1,800 people in 20 offices across the planet. Forbes identified Xero as the World’s Most Innovative Growth Company in 2014 and 2015.

Small business makes the world go round – it’s the heart of the global economy. We want millions of small businesses to thrive through better tools, information and connections. Like all great challenges, we can’t do it by ourselves: we work closely with our customers, partners, and other friends to push innovation forward, turning Xero into the online business platform for the world.

Life before Xero was a nightmare. I was basically using an Excel spreadsheet set up by a friend. The amount of time it took was ridiculous.
