    Information

    Xero Online is accounting software that can be connected to RMS for both Cash & Accrual Accounting properties.

    The interface to Xero Online enables properties to map their General Ledger Account Codes to ledger movements and payments and export this financial information directly into the accounting software from RMS.

    General Ledger Account Codes setup in RMS should match the setup in Xero.

    Accrual Accounting properties must ensure that the General Ledger Account Codes setup in Xero for Advances Ledger, Guest Ledger, City Ledger, Receipts & Credit Cards are setup as Current Asset or Current Liability in Xero.

    Cash Accounting properties must ensure that the General Ledger Account Codes setup in Xero for Suspense Receipts, Receipts and Credit Cards are setup as Current Asset or Current Liability.

    The GST setup in Xero should be setup as the Full GST amount as RMS will calculate any Concessional or Free GST before the financial data has been exported into Xero.

    Australia Full GST: 10%.
    New Zealand Full GST: 15%.



    Connecting Xero Online in RMS requires the Financial Interfaces module.

    All General Ledger Account Codes must be setup in RMS & Xero and mapped in this setup or the Financial Export will display errors.

    Refer to the Xero documentation for a list of restricted and system accounts that cannot be mapped in RMS.

    Xero does not allow a manual journal entry into the bank account in Xero. Refer to the Xero documentation for steps to manually adjust a bank account balance in Xero.



    Users will require Security Profile access to use this feature.
