Sync with Xero

About Xero & coreplus

The Xero sync feature allows invoices and payments recorded in coreplus to be synchronised to a corresponding Xero account. This allows you to take advantage of the powerful accountancy tools Xero has to offer as well as reconcile coreplus revenue with actual bank transactions recorded with Xero.


Note: You will need to sign up with Xero in order to utilise this feature. You can try Xero for free at
