Xero Integration

If you are a sole trader using Xero for your bookkeeping records then our integration will allow you to import your Profit & Loss report direct to the self employed pages of your tax return. 

To save time we have mapped the default Xero headings to appropriate GoSimpleTax categories on the self employed page.

If your Xero heading is not in the list below then once the profit and loss report has been imported to GoSimpleTax you will be able to map the heading manually and if you desire save this mapping for future imports.

Please note that this feature is only available to Platinum Plan users.
