Tap to pay and more from Xero

Xero has announced a suite of product innovations at Xerocon London.

New tax, payments, and payroll manager features were all unveiled, including an industry-first Tap to Pay in the Xero Accounting Mobile app.

A new partnership tax solution will be available from July in beta. Xero has also opened the beta of its new integrated practice management and tax solution in Xero Practice Manager (XPM). The full launch is coming later this year.

Tap to Pay is being launched in the UK and Australia first, and will allow businesses to accept payments on the spot, right from their app. Tap to Pay will first be offered to UK Android users in a beta program in August.

Diya Jolly, chief product and technology officer at Xero, said: “Expanding our tools to include features like partnership tax and the new payroll manager will equip advisors to better support their clients with critical small business needs and move towards a more streamlined practice management experience.”
