Soldo: Integration with Xero and partner programme
Soldo has recently launched an integration with Xero, connecting to both their automatic bank feed and accounting APIs. The integration includes expense sharing, meaning that Soldo users can validate and transfer expense information such as receipts, notes, spending categories to Xero.
The new integration also allows Soldo to sync with Xero contacts so that users can attribute billable expenses to clients.
Additionally, the integration provides the possibility to pull in tracking codes from Xero and attribute them to transactions, pulling in relevant VAT rates from the Xero chart of accounts and automatically syncing transactions with Xero.
Alongside the new partnership, Soldo also announced a new programme for accountants and bookkeepers that includes access to partner edition products, free use of Soldo and special pricing for the partners’ clients, as well as flexible billing options.
