AccountingWeb Live Expo is finally here, and we’ve got a host of panels, masterclasses, and other activities taking place at the event. Here’s why you should come say hello to Xero at stand D20.


We’re so excited to be joining so many of the amazing accounting and bookkeeping community for AccountingWeb Live Expo in Coventry on the 30 November - 1 December. This is what we’ve got planned for the event. 

A look ahead to the future of accounting technology

As accountants, you’ll have witnessed great innovation in technology over the past decade, from cloud accounting, to Open Banking, and now tax digitisation with Making Tax Digital (MTD).

With this in mind, a panel of expert speakers, including our UK MD Alex von Schirmeister, will tackle the wide-ranging and fascinating topic: Where will Accounting Tech be in 10 Years From Now?

The session takes place at 4.15pm on Wednesday 30 November – expect ruminations on the next decade and beyond, how practices can adapt to the biggest changes coming their way, and predictions on what accounting will look like in the years ahead. 

Learn why we’re all for MTD for ITSA

MTD for ITSA (Income Tax Self Assessment), is on the mind of a huge number of practices and their clients, with concerns regarding the level of change the government legislation will require. 

However, we wanted to take this opportunity to explain how the government legislation can benefit your practice and clients, in our panel: MTD for ITSA is great! Yes, we said it!

Our tax experts Amy Farr and Stuart Miller will discuss MTD for ITSA with two amazing accounting partners: Claire Markham, Managing Director at The Focus Collection, and Clare Bowen, Director at Monahans. 

The session, taking place at Theatre 1 at 2pm on 30 November, will outline how MTD for ITSA offers the chance for accountants and bookkeepers to deliver more value to clients and grow their practice. The panel will also offer tips for how you can make a smooth transition to a digital future – you don’t want to miss this one. 

Check out our masterclasses

We’re hosting a number of education masterclasses at stand D20 to offer practical support for your day-to-day use of Xero. 

At 11am on both days, our education specialist Becca Smith will run you through the very basics of using Xero. 

Sam See, another Xero education specialist, will offer a masterclass on how you can streamline accounts production with Xero Tax, taking place at 1pm on 30 November, and 12.30pm on 1 December. 

Sam will also explain how you can get ready for MTD for ITSA with Xero, at 2.45pm on 30 November, and 2.30pm on 1 December. 

Head to stand D20 for so much more

There’s so much to look forward to, but it’s impossible to overlook the excitement of spending time with the wonderful accounting and bookkeeping community, so please do head to stand D20 to say hello. 

Here, you can stop by for a chat, grab some Xero-branded goodies, join our Happy Hour at 3pm on day one, as well as check out some freestyle football performances throughout the event. 

Finally, you can find out how you can enter our competition, and be in with a chance to win four tickets to see The Lionesses play at a home game, with accommodation and dinner included*. 

We can’t wait to see you there.
