Xero and Lightyear
Beautiful, Intelligent Accounts Payables

Intelligent Accounts Payable Integration with Xero

Lightyear automates data entry and streamlines the Accounts Payable process for Xero businesses of all sizes. We provide a robust approvals workflow to manage the approval process before the bills are sent to Xero for payment. Invoices are stored online for 7 years, enabling a truly connected and paperless office in the Lightyear Cloud. Supplier Cards, Categories, Tax Codes, GL's are all transmitted on a line by line basis. Invoice file and Invoice URL are also sent for ease of reference between the 2 systems

Lightyear & Xero

Because Xero and Lightyear are both cloud-based, set-up between the systems is seamless. After that its a 1 click process to export your data to Xero.

Lightyear exports line item detail on each bill back into Xero giving you more data and better accuracy in your Xero account. The data we send to Xero is:

  • Products
  • Product codes
  • GL codes
  • Tax codes
  • Link to the bill image in Lightyear
